Emma Brenny ’25 – IES Nantes, France

Bonjour à tous!

My name is Emma Brenny and I am a sophomore at Hope studying elementary education with ESL and French education minors. I am from Plymouth, Michigan, and am going to be staying in Nantes, France for the semester with a French immersion program. Not only is it immersion, but I’m also in a homestay, so I’ll also have the aspect of living with a French family. I love all things travel and learning about other cultures, so I am super excited for this incredible opportunity to connect with others and expand my knowledge! 

Along with the many trips and experiences that await me in France, I also hope to strengthen my language skills and meet lots of new people. I wish for a time away that will bring growth and enjoyment that I can share with others. Follow along for observations, French vocab, and many new experiences!

À bientôt,

Emma Brenny
