In an adjacent room, Stephanie Krebs, an LyIT 3rd year student gave a colourful presentation in French about her semester abroad in Amiens in 2010. Stephanie found her semester abroad extremely enjoyable and would encourage other students to avail of this wonderful opportunity. Not only did she improve her oral and written competence in the French language, but it also gave her a valuable insight into the French culture and mentality.
