One recent student at LSI Paris, discusses her impressions of Paris and of LSI. Rebecca Rosen is from Denmark and it appears that living in Paris has been a long held dream.
“My first trip to Paris was when I was 8 years old. I was on a trip with my mum who used to live and work as an au pair there when she was younger. I clearly remember my first impressions of Paris, its people and its contagious spirit. According to my mum I loved Paris so much that I said: “Mum, I want to live here some day.”
In March 2017 I decided to follow these dreams. For six months, I stayed in the city and was able to experience Paris at first hand . It was a snap decision made a few weeks beforehand and not particularly well-planned . I had no specific aim apart from at long last getting the chance to explore and experience the culture of the French city that had stolen my heart as a child.
Having studied basic French in school for 5 years, I had some knowledge of the language. However this was an opportunity to learn more and I was eager to reach a higher level. So, one afternoon upon wandering around le Marais I went to enrol at LSI Paris. I followed the course for four weeks and vastly improved my language skills. More importantly, though, I met some truly wonderful people, some of whom I still speak to regularly.
Looking back at my trip I’m very glad that I found someone with whom I had a common ground. Going to LSI for the first month of my stay definitely helped me to settle into my new, though temporary, life. During my stay I got to further indulge my interest in fashion and art. The streets of Paris have an inspiring, creative spirit that is absolutely contagious.
If, like me, you appreciate aesthetics and thrive on beautiful surrounding, history and interesting people, Paris is definitely the place to be. It’s a place that I plan on returning to as soon as the chance presents itself. Allez! Découvrez Paris – la meilleure source d’amour et d’inspiration éternelle.”
