Natalia Maldari '11
Major: French

I spent my junior year in 2009/2010 in Paris. In the fall, I participated in the Goucher Paris program and in the spring, in the IFE program. I completed a part-time internship at L'Atelier de Paris Carolyn Carlson and learned what is involved in public relations for a dance company or any arts field. During the same semester, I benefited enormously from the grammar and phonetics at the Sorbonne. Residence in a in a foyer where I was one of only two Anglophones gave me conversational skills I wouldn't have enjoyed had I been in a dormitory with my compatriots.  During the spring semester, the intensive courses at IFE and my internship in a public high school gave me better insight and understanding of the French government and education systems.
