Eighth grade goes shopping to improve their French vocabulary

DSC_0233The 8th grade low intermediate French class went to the Carrefour supermarket recently to practice the quantity vocabulary. Here is what students said about the trip:

“We had to make an approved shopping list prior to our departure… In the store, when we did not understand something or did not know where something was, we asked someone who worked there in French, which helped my French a lot, because we practiced asking questions.”
“I have to admit I probably learned about food better being there than in a classroom”
“The trip to Carrefour was really fun because it is a way to learn in a whole new way. I was inspired by the Francophones and I started speaking French to my friends while we were walking.  It kind of gave me more motivation in French.”
