The HHS French Club sponsored a fun and educational three-hour workshop on Saturday, April 18th entitled “Bonjour les enfants! French for Children.” The program involved eighteen elementary school students from the Harrison schools and was taught by HHS students Ava Ganik, Scott Nielsen, Antoine Dartienne, Elina Dufour-Ferron, Miwa Goble, Gamou Ngom, and Lauren Nielsen.
Students taught introductory lessons on such topics as greetings, colors, numbers, famous French monuments, animals, food, clothing, songs and even a lesson on How to Make Crepes.
“The lessons were both taught and received with great enthusiasm,” said HHS French teacher Susie Michel. “The young students walked away in delight with colorful work packets created by the French students. But a truly French day would be incomplete without fine French foods. In between the first hour of teaching /learning and the third hour of application of the new knowledge, the elementary school students were treated to homemade, on the spot crepes, accompanied by special toppings, croissants and beverages. Delicieux! Service included and compliments of the Club de francais students.”
