Study Abroad Develops More than Just Language Skills

Emily Crane had the opportunity to study abroad with the Roanoke-Saint-Lô Sister Cities exchange program. "Speaking French on the street, at school, and with my host family gave so much context to what I'd learned in the classroom at Roanoke," said Crane. In addition to taking classes, Crane had an internship as an English teaching assistant at a K-12 school, where every hour she would move to a different class of students. "In addition to French skills, I also developed personally in a way that I don't think I would have through a summer at home," said Crane.
