"Over the two semesters I was there, I met people from different nationalities and they were very friendly and sympathetic because we were all living the same situation. Also the people in charge of the international program at Sup de co were very understanding. They were ready to listen to your questions and give you the appropriate answer

I learn a lot about myself and what I want to do in the future. The international experience that I gained this past ten months was very wonderful. It enhanced what I want to do in a near future. The international classes I had showed me what I could do on an international level. I took classes that I never had before, like E-business, international marketing or negotiation and having those classes showed me another side of the business world. I learn about other cultures and how they do business there. It was beneficial because I have now more knowledge about the business world in different country.

My time overseas made me realized that I was stronger than I thought. I was scared to go to another country that I never been before. It was my first time also to Europe. When I came to France I didn’t know what to expect. I did some researches about the city where I was going, but when you don’t have any expectation, it’s hard to have a clear idea of what to expect.

I met people from all over the world; I travel to cities I never thought I would go. It was an experienced I will never forget. I have grown so much over the past ten months. I learn about myself and it made me realize how much I love my family and friends and how Canada is a wonderful country to live in..."

"After my first few weeks in Montpellier, I’ve had a lot of fun. The city has a large student population and there are always various parties and activities for students to participate in. The weather helps add to the fun as well. Just about every day here has been warm with a blue sky and a bright sun. Montpellier also has very nice sandy beaches, although the water isn’t too much warmer than Canada in the summertime. In addition the people here seem quite nice and many people know English, which has been good as the French accents can be hard to understand. The city itself is also very nice and large with unique architecture and many different stores."
