Fantastic

Amazing! Grenoble is centrally located and filled with students (similar to Boston)!

It's very easy to meet an infinite number of international students! Also, since it's not very touristy you have the opportunity for true cultural immersion.

Immerse Yourself in French Culture in Grenoble

The cultural experience is amazing! You will learn a lot of French. If you want to party there you can, but it's not the best scene for it. If you're really interested in immersing yourself in the language this the program for you.

Less than ideal host family

Living with a host family was less than ideal. However, this tiny city situated between Mont Blanc and Geneva was fabulous for meeting other students and for traveling across Europe. Grenoble is a scientific mecca, with some of the best engineering programs in the country. Great skiing close by as well!

not bad

It was short, just a summer program, although they have a longer program as well.

It was pretty good.
