Any Questions?

Lindsay Turlan and Monika Markley, our dedicated US-based representatives, are the go-to people for all aspects of the application process, including billing, pre-departure preparation, and university liaising. If you have any questions, get in contact with them and they will be happy to help.

Eligibility

The ideal APA student is bright and motivated, internationally-minded who seeks a cross-cultural experience and has a desire to experience Senegalese life.

We know that several factors play into a student’s ability to learn a second language (or third, or fourth!). The number of semesters of college French should be seen as a guideline when determining which level of program to participate in. If you are unsure which program to apply for, contact us and we will be happy to assist you in in determining your level.
