All participants on our study tour to France (9 – 25 September) had a very memorable trip and it really is a fantastic opportunity for students who are passionate about their language studies and wanting to immerse themselves in the culture, along with challenge of engaging in their language learning in a different environment. We visited Nice, Montpellier and Paris, along with day excursions to Nimes and Carcassone. During the study tour students participated in language school for five mornings, stayed in homestay accommodation for part of the trip to truly immerse themselves in the French culture and way of life and, of course, we visited a number of significant tourist attractions throughout the tour. Congratulations to all students participating for their exemplary behaviour throughout our time away. My sincere thanks must go to our LOTE learning area leader and French teacher, Bibi Peerbux, for all her planning for this trip over the past two years.
