There is a Canadian government funded 5-week French summer program and I'm still contemplating whether I should go or nott.. If I do receive a bursary(which is very likely), it's basically free, except the transportation fee(will probably cost around $400 for a train to Quebec), and registration fee(150 dollars); you can also get a univ credit. The downside of this is that I'm not taking French this year and I am terrible at French. (or maybe that's why I should go?)
Another option for me is to just stay home while volunteering(or working) and studying for some SATs because I really need to. SATs are the biggest thing I'm worried about right now, and that's why I want to stay back.
This is the summer after my junior year and I have to spend it wisely.
