I needed to go to the doctor my first week in France, and it was easy to use the CISI app on my phone to find doctors in the area. I ended up going to a doctor not listed on the CISI app, but the doctor gave me all of the information I needed to fill out a claim form that I submitted once I returned home.

The excursions were amazing. We were able to go to a baking school, famous kitchens in Paris, a garden in Versailles, and a dairy farm.

I wish we had been able to do more of these!! It was incredible seeing some massive gardens, farmers markets, and baking experiences. These excursions really made the trip worthwhile, as we learned a lot and it was a good way to be immersed in the culture and experience real French day-to-day living. The bread and croissant baking was absolutely incredible for all our pastry friends, while the farmers market and lunch was a good way to show us how farmers make a living and sell their goods. The Versailles kitchen garden was beautiful and it was fun actually being outside and seeing the cool growing techniques and ideas behind the architecture.

This study abroad program teaches individuals how to prepare meals that appeal to people who have lost their appetite or do not know what to eat due to various sicknesses. It teaches you that food is not only just something to fuel a person's body but is a tool that can connect people to one another, to past memories or to their childhood.

Learning about the idiosyncrasies of French cuisine from actual chefs exceeds anything you'll ever learn from those generic French cookbooks.
