For students learning French, visiting France is the best way to learn more. Next summer, LCHS students will be given an opportunity to visit France with their French teachers, Mrs. Sadler and Mrs. Kanner.
The trip will last from May 30th to June 7th, and students will be spending nine days visiting various locations such as Paris, Avignon, Nice, and Monaco. The trip’s objective is to give students a unique view of France and access to native French speakers.
Currently, the price is about 4,000 dollars, but 300 dollars discount is possible when registration is done before October 1st.
Mrs. Sadler, the head teacher said, “I will take as many students I can. I want to introduce French to them, and give a chance to see what life is like over there.”
Mrs. Sadler has been planning this trip since last year’s summer vacation. She held several monthly meetings to have better communication with the students regarding the trip. On the last week of October, she will hold another meeting for anyone interested.
Students can get a preview of the trip by going on to last year’s blog, lchsparis2015.com. Another website that Mrs. Sadler uses is acis.com, where students can get a brief schedule of what they will be doing in France.
Mrs. Sadler has already planned the itinerary. For the first three days, the group will stay in Paris. Students will visit the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, the Louvre, and the museum of Orsay, where they will learn how to paint like an impressionist. For the remaining days, the students will be traveling to Provence, where they will get a chance to examine its famous architecture, and back to Nice, where they will examine the medieval parts of the ancient town. Ms. Sadler hopes to spend the last day at the wonderful beach of Nice.
Mrs. Sadler strongly suggests students visit one of the meetings and find out if they are interested in flying to France. She said, “I will take anyone who wants to visit France. If they can’t participate in this trip, I hope they can go on future trips and develop their roles as worldly citizens.”
