This trip allows students of French to receive a first-hand understanding of the importance of the French language to North America. There is nothing more powerful for a language student than to spend time in a country where that language is spoken. Following each trip, students return filled with energy and enthusiasm to continue learning French, and they share that excitement with their classmates.
Thanks so much to French teachers Anne Zachary (Ottoson) and Joli Alderuccio (AHS), who led this year’s trip. I am grateful that we can offer real-world experiences like this to our students, and provide them with an authentic opportunity to use the language they have been studying. We will run the Québec trip again during the 2017-2018 school year. (Next year, France exchange!)
