Perth Modern parle de nous

Voici un petit texte écrit par Roisin Callery (une des élèves de Perth Modern qui est venue nous rendre visite en septembre) et publié sur le site de Perth Modern School:


EXCHANGE TO REUNION ISLAND: The following report was provided by tour participant Roisin Callery. ‘During the October school holidays, 14 students from Years 11, 10 and 9 had the enriching experience of a two-week French exchange in Reunion Island. These two weeks were busily spent developing our knowledge and skills in the French language, forming lasting bonds with our host families and being immersed in the vibrant culture of the island. The trip was filled with adventure and excitement as we climbed near an active volcano, hiked up impressive mountainsides and swam in the aquamarine waters. On our first day, we were welcomed by our host families, enjoying a welcome picnic at the beach which was a lovely opportunity to meet everyone. Our time at school was spent giving presentations on Australia as well as experiencing subjects such as history, physics and sport in French. The Réunionnais students were fascinated with AFL and it quickly became very popular throughout the school. Weekends and afternoons were spent with our hosts, who went out of their way to make us a part of their families. They were kind and patient, helping us practise and improve our French. Coming back from the exchange we have all noticed a vast improvement in our understanding of the French language, becoming more relaxed when it comes to speaking and listening. Our host buddies will come over to Australia for a two-week stay in March next year and we are already counting down the days until we can see them again.’
