Greencastle High School student nominated to participate in International Honors Program

Thursday, April 7, 2011

The Indiana University Honors Program in Foreign Languages (IUHPFL) is proud to announce that Alice Moore from Greencastle High School has been selected to participate in the Honors Program.

This summer, Alice will spend seven weeks in Europe, attending intensive French language and cultural instruction. Alice has signed an Honor Code and Language Commitment that requires her to speak only French while abroad. As a result, students typically test into fifth semester foreign language instruction at Indiana University.

"We are excited to nominate Alice for participation in our Honors Program," said Stephanie Goetz, Managing Director of IUHPFL. "The international language program offers students an extraordinary opportunity to significantly advance their language skills while gaining a rich foreign experience."

Every year the IUHPFL Program sends more than 225 high school students to nine sites in Europe and Mexico where they become fully immersed in the foreign language and host country. For seven weeks, students participate in intensive language and cultural studies, live with a host family and take part in multiple excursions to regional destinations and major cities. While the Honors Program requires a significant commitment, it garners exceptional results.
