Pursue Your Dreams
Within fully funded scholarships from the French Consulate in Jerusalem, two colleagues of French Language specialization and I were chosen by the instructors of the French Department to participate and benefit from the intensive French courses at the University of Rennes 2 for three weeks.

I lived a new wonderful experience in France. It added a lot to me on both the personal and educational levels. I practiced the language everywhere with native speakers and learners of it. I tried to forget all the languages I know and just focus on French.
During my stay in Rennes, located in the Northwest of France, I studied many courses focused on language skills and French culture. Moreover, there was a well organized program of different interesting useful activities which included cultural activities and many tours.
The tours’ objectives were to know new French cities, unearth breathtaking islands, and to taste the main dishes which feature the host country. My writing, speaking and listening skills have been improved. I have became more passionate to learn more French. One more beautiful thing is that I met a lot of new people of different nationalities, ages and religions. Nevertheless, we all had the same aim which was: Learning French. I made everlasting friendships and now because of this scholarship, I have friends from everywhere. Indeed, this experience helped me refine my personality and change my perspective towards life and future!
