We are excited to see VLLC French student, Andrew, off on his new adventure! Andrew has a one way ticket to France, where he plans to spend 3-5 years studying at a prestigious academy – he will perfect his trade, learning from stone-carving masters from all over France! He first heard about the opportunity 2 years ago, and it has been on his mind ever since! “I don’t want to regret not having an attempt,” he says, “it will be new experiences everyday while learning from the masters themselves!” Andrew looks forward to being able to converse with the locals using his French language skills, and encourages others to do the same - “Anyone can do anything if they put their mind to it. The first obstacle was realising that learning a new language isn't as hard as first thought… new things are added to the brain every day that you tend to recall on a later date [and] learning a new language is more or less the same. All that is done while learning a new language is reinforcing what you already know..... and the teachers are pretty good at their job too ;)” Andrew is excited to start a new chapter of his life in France, and says the only thing keeping him from jumping on a plane straight away is the sale of his car… anyone in the market?
