Malena's experience was excellent! She matured, learned, and enjoyed it so much! When she came back she enrolled in French 241-Introduction to French Literature, at Purdue, for which your program was the best preparation we can think of.

We are the parents of Malena de la Fuente (stagiaire at Brest, Summer 2010) and the reason to contact you is that we wanted you to know how much we appreciate the opportunity that the program you lead gave our daughter.

Malena's experience was excellent! She matured, learned, and enjoyed it so much! When she came back she enrolled in French 241-Introduction to French Literature, at Purdue,  for which your program was the best preparation we can think of. Indiana's kids are incredible lucky to have access to IUHPFL and every time we are asked about it by other parents we enthusiastically recommend it.

We also wanted to thank you for the way you addressed our concerns and anxiety before Malena's trip. You were very professional and, equally important for us, you showed that you cared about the students in your program. We understood that you were on top of everything and that we could count on you and your staff, which made the whole experience much easier. We hope you know how much we appreciate your work.
