"I love my AFNO membership because it gives me the opportunity to unabashedly engage with my love of French language and culture. Early in my language learning experience in college I struggled with confidence, but AFNO encourages you to simply try and to have fun! Put your best foot forward and reap the rewards. It is impressive how much you learn and improve when you're enjoying yourself! Merci beaucoup, AFNO !"
