In summer of 2018, Francine traveled to Malang, Indonesia for an Indonesian language immersion program funded by the US Department of State’s Critical Language Scholarship. She not only used her language skills in everyday life with my host family but also using it to converse with coffee and tea plantation farmers about their work experiences. Moreover, she ahs been featured in a radio interview, written an article for a national newspaper, and performed research on Indonesian cats’ tails and the reasons for their stubbiness, all with her improved language skills!
