I went to the French majors/minors meeting today and got some saddening information:
They don't do summer term study abroad programs.
Being a member of the ballroom tour team means you rehearse all fall and all winter semesters and then tour during the spring term. So my only hope to get to do study abroad in Paris was to go summer term, and that is apparently not an option.
I guess I'll just have to go on my own. I have the money already set aside, I have a mother fluent in French who wants to come, and I have three weeks in July or August. I can either go this summer after I tour the East Coast with the team, or I can wait until the summer after that, when I'll already be in Germany/Austria with the team, and I can just stay in Europe for the rest of the summer. OR, I could just up and quit ballroom already and spend the rest of my life in France. :)
Anyway, I'm seriously considering putting together a trip to France/Europe next summer. Anyone interested in coming?
