French with Madame Shea!
French 7

Springtime in Paris! Ooh la la!

On y va!

Pack your bags...we will be spending the rest of the year as (imaginary) foreign exchange students in Paris!


We will be learning about schools in France as we create our new "schedules" as foreign exchange students. Students will be learning new vocabulary (school subjects) as well as how to express their opinions on them. They will be learning to tell time in French, and will be able to write out a schedule of their activities.

Of course, since we will be "living" in Paris for the next two months, we will be doing a lot of sightseeing.  We will also be taking some little "side trips" to destinations near Paris, including Versailles, Normandy, and Mont Saint Michel.
