"The French SLI was exactly what I needed to begin my master’s degree. It was a perfect balance of both language teaching theory and content, and the professors and students were all a great support system. The heavy workload is beyond worth it -- you'll come away feeling recharged and ready to employ new ideas in your classroom, and counting the days until you return to Angers!" Laura E.
“The SOU French SLI in Angers, France was a truly transformational experience. I emerged from the program with not only a degree, but with new friends, colleagues, and a deeper appreciation for and knowledge of the French language and culture. I would recommend the SOU French SLI in Angers, France to any French teacher at any stage of their career. The opportunity to earn a Master's degree in France, learn from top-notch professors, and make connections with colleagues from across the country is priceless.” Rebecca R.

"Being just on the other side of my first session I feel very accomplished. The SLI program is extremely rigorous, but what I have learned is very useful in my teaching career, and I miss being in lovely Angers." --Sharon K.
“Great director, talented professors, and very friendly students!
“I would HIGHLY recommend this program. It is serious, intense, the teachers are all excellent, and I have learned an incredible amount regarding second language theory, grammar (both teaching and learning), and the newest teaching methods.”
“I cannot express enough what a difference this past summer has made in my French class. Last year, French 3 was the most difficult of all my preps and I could not get the kids to retain anything to save myself. With only a month gone by in the school year, the class now basically preps itself and the kids learn and retain everything!! Attending the program was the best decision I could have made for these students and I wanted to thank you for helping me turn my French class around!” Adam S.
