Today we took our grades 10, 11 and 12 Core French students to a French restaurant.
I love this activity because students use the vocabulary and the grammatical structures they learn in class in an authentic and practical situation. Increasing their confidence when they speak French is so important and when they are able to communicate, it really makes them feel good about themselves. They all ordered their meals in French. It also exposes them to some French culture by giving them the opportunity to try some authentic French dishes.
Here’s what I had:
Students also had the choice of a ham and cheese-filled crepe, or pasta with a vegetable sauce.
And for dessert…
I wish there were more places where we could take our students so that they could be immersed in the language outside of the classroom for longer periods of time, but living in an anglophone environment, it’s difficult. We do our best though…
The students were really appreciative and enjoyed the outing.
À demain, mes amis!
