French 4 Students Visit Online with Students In France

Claire B.
French 4 students participated in a live question and answer session via Zoom with our exchange students in Troyes, France. Some of the things we learned included the fact that French students do not bring their own lunches to school. They either eat in the school cafeteria, or go home for lunch. Also, visiting Paris for them is around a two-hour train ride, similar to visiting Washington, DC for our students.
Finally, the French students (juniors) are anticipating a more difficult senior year before taking the standardized test, the baccalaureate, at the end of their high school career, while our juniors generally feel as though they are through their most difficult year. The Zoom was a satisfying conclusion to our year-long exchanges.
