Luisa Garcia, a London Internship student, carried out a Broadcast Journalism Internship at NBC News this spring. Securing the internship in this incredibly competitive field was an achievement in itself, but Luisa was also given the opportunity to research and create a news package for NBC on elephant poaching in Africa.
AIFS in Cannes student Elise Prado can give you plenty of reasons why Cannes is a great study abroad destination. Here are just a few, which she wrote about in her blog Yes, I Cannes and so can you.
Though we’ve had our fair share of rainy days, the weather is what makes this place amazing.

Or snowing for that matter!
Le Collège International de Cannes gives you the opportunity to make friends with other international students trying to get their "bonjours" right as well.

Granada is also a medium-sized city, so I expected a lot of Spanish speakers and more immersion opportunities...
What is one of your favorite memories from abroad? The entire experience of living with my host family is without question my favorite memory from my semester abroad. After years of hosting students, my señora knew exactly what I needed before I did. I laughed at her table, practiced dances in her hallway and cried on her shoulder. My host sister adopted me in a way that I have not forgotten, even all these years later!
