This visit to France really impressed upon me the usefulness of knowing a second language, as well as the importance of making an effort to communicate with people in their native language.

This past summer of 2012, I attended a study abroad trip with Dr. Marianne Fivek and Dr. Ann Swinker, and fifteen other students from Penn State. The trip was for an embedded course on French Equine Industries in Normandy. The objective of the trip was to learn about the horse business in France, which included, breeding, transportation, dressage, racing, showing, and selling.

I am a Francophile. I love just about all things French: The food, the language, the culture, and mostly just the way of life. The “joie de vivre” if you will.
