Language exchange course in Lyon- France over the summer

Please help me to cover the expenses  of my french language course in Lyon !!

Who Am I?

Hi, my name is Antonio and I am from Brazil. I am a first year BA Modern languages student. I am enrolled on a 4 year course here at Essex, with 1 being a year abroad. I would like to study in France for this year- but to do so, I need to be great at speaking French and have a good understanding of the culture. This leads me to the start of my crowdfunding journey - a French language immersion course!

What project am i crowdfunding for?

My goal is to raise £2200 to be able to go on this French course in Lyon. This will help support my degree of Modern Languages as well as assisting me in reaching the language level required to study at a university in France. My dream is to become a French language teacher here in the UK, so not only will the project help me in the short term of my degree, but in the long term for my career prospects. To know a language is to live amongst it - and doing this summer course will stand me in good stead for my year abroad and help me get to know the language and French culture.

Cost Breakdown:

Minimum Target: £2000

£1,235 Course

£420 Accommodation

£345+ Living Expenses

Stretch Goal: £2200

Anything over my minimum will go towards flights, study tools and extra living expenses in case of emergencies.
