A farewell cocktail Friday evening brought together professors, staff, host families and students. Professors shared anecdotes, students said their farewells, and all looked back on a semester full of laughter, learning and excitement.
To the AUCP Class of Fall 2014: Merci for your endless enthusiasm, your smiles and your jokes (yes, in French we still understood your jokes). We are so glad to have gotten to know a group of such bright, positive students and we congratulate you on your impressive progress in French. We’ve loved hearing about your adventures, seeing you explore the region with your language partners, reading your blogs, hearing about you from your host families and sharing Thanksgiving with you. We sincerely hope that French, France and the French will continue to play an important role in your lives long after you touch down on American soil. We hope you’ll come back and see us sometime, know that you are always les bienvenues.
Vous êtes formidables (pour prendre les mots de Stromae), continuer à #profiter, et au plaisir de vous revoir bientôt!
