This summer, fourteen Charles River School (CRS) French students and a number of parents traveled to Québec City under the guidance of French teacher Julie Weeden. Students learned about the beginnings of French civilization in North America at the Place Royale and le Quartier du Petit Champlain, visited the Village Huron in Wendake, explored Québec City. From Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré’s shrine, to Montmorency Falls, to feasting on les crépes, croissants and a bowl of chocolat chaud, students were truly immersed in Québec history and culture.
“It was so rewarding to see our students using their language skills and their cultural knowledge in an authentic environment,” said Julie Weeden. Whether ordering lunch at an outdoor café or pretending to be a French soldier, I was proud of each one of them for taking risks, paying careful attention, and using what they had studied in class.”
