Paris Correspondent 2016

As the end of the school year approaches for New York City College Of Technology we get ready for another year of the Thomas Ahrens International Work/Study Program. The year has flown by and here we are once again, getting our bags packed for Paris, France.

Eiffel Tower

Today marked the first day of the French language and culture immersion. Professors Hoffman and Warner start off the morning by going over assignments and last minute questions before turning it over to Professor Duchamp.



Professor Damien Duchamp went over Parisian Culture, do’s and don’ts and street safety. Just like in New York City, we have to be very aware of our surroundings.

Tomorrow,  we have one more day to prepare ourselves as a group, I have some helpful podcasts and apps below that were really helpful for me.


Here is a great podcast that teaches you basic French phrases.




The Ulmon maps work great offline, just be sure to  open them up before you go so you fully download them.

See you all tomorrow!!

    Great post Mayra! The Coffee Break French podcast is a great resource that can be downloaded and listened to on the go- and its FREE… It offers over 200 short episodes of conversational French. It is quite amazing. Thanks for sharing!
