Sixth grade exchanges ideas with students from local school

On December 20, the beginners and intermediate French classes in 6th grade started an exchange program with a school in Maransart.  We were welcomed by about 30 students and had a wonderful afternoon playing board games and tasting a delicious cougnou.  We look forward welcoming them to St. John’s soon !

This is what the students had to say about the afternoon:

I was amazed how hard some of the children from the school Maransart tried to speak to us in English

I really enjoyed the trip. We got to play with Belgian kids that were really nice and friendly.  I think it was a great experience and a good way to practice my French.
