Daata Back On The MenuDecember 10, 2020
We’re a little late with this one, given that it happened last week, but, hey, mieux vaut tard que jamais.
Young Rose Dillon, Temple Carrig’s French teacher, recently set up a little student exchange with Tania Richet, English teacher at Collége Monthéty in Pontault-Combault.
Which, we’re guessing, is in France.
Given the Covid restrictions, this particular student exchange was all done online, as explained here…
Temple Carrig’s French teacher, Rose Dillon and Collège Monthéty’s English teacher, Tania Richet organised a virtual exchange for their students because the usual and traditional French exchange isn’t possible this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Collège Monthéty is located about one hour outside Paris and students have been exchanging letters for the past couple of years. This morning students met each other for the first time and exchanged questions, chats and presentations. The French students even prepared a quiz for the Temple Carrig students and it was great fun.
The two principals of Collège Monthéty introduced themselves to TCG principal Alan Cox, which made the event even more special.
It was interesting too to see that Covid regulations in Collège Monthéty are similar to those in Temple Carrig School.
Mr. Cox is a great advocate for foreign languages and his French comprehension is excellent. He is very much a ‘oui’ man and supports all our efforts to make modern language-learning more enjoyable and authentic.
