The goal of the French language program at Page is to get students excited about French Culture and language. Therefore, French students at Page can expect to experience the language and cultures of France, Belgium, Switzerland, Quebec and other French speaking areas through virtual tours, projects, Mr. Salter’s French Café, field trips as well as international travel. Each Tuesday, French students will have the opportunity to engage in “A taste of French” through French Café. Many of the Café activities range from authentic cheese tasting to creating Belgian chocolates. Students will also be excited to know that we will visit Café Bicyclette in the Cité Francophone where we can practice our speaking skills and eat delicious food. Finally, the ultimate goal for this French program is to provide an opportunity for students to immerse themselves in language and culture through exchanges and International Travel. So, during Spring Break 2016, students will be travelling to France and Italy, including Paris and Rome. Be excited, open doors, choose French!
