The two semesters I spent in Quebec were an intense and sometimes even challenging experience that I would not want to miss. My stay at the Université Laval, the oldest francophone university on the American continent was the perfect answer to my desire get to to know a part of the French-speaking world outside Europe during my year abroad. Quebec, the capital of the province of the same name, with its picturesque old town, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, offered me the ideal setting to immerse myself in the “culture québécoise”. However, the most beautiful memories of my stay certainly originate from some trips to the absolutely breathtaking Canadian countryside. And don’t be deterred from spending a semester abroad in Quebec by the long and harsh Canadian winter lasting for about five months – back in Mannheim, I even miss the snowy and icy weather.
