Josiah went on a camping trip in the mountains of Arêches with his class from school a few weeks ago and then had another mountain hike to the Fort de la Batterie today. He has had a lot of opportunities to learn about many different things – including French language – outside of the classroom. These field trips have been pretty amazing.
With his class, Josiah has toured a cheese factory in Beaufort and a lumbermill (not to mention the steel mill and skiing trips that he already enjoyed this winter). After the three straight days speaking and listening to French only, he was really encouraged by his progress with language learning.
He also had the chance this May to go to Lausanne, Switzerland, where his class was able to visit the Hands-On Science Center and the Olympics Museum. His class had won a special contest with their report on the para-olympic athletes. It was pretty cool.
