Bonjour! Students in Ms. Rich's French classes have received letters from their new French-speaking penpals. Over the course of this school year, the Marion students will be corresponding with this group of students from France. These students are learning English as a second language at the Collège Don Bosco in the Mayenne district of northwestern France. Their teacher Séverine Bourgneuf and the MSD French teacher Amanda Rich have been working together for the past year to connect their students across the globe. In addition to practicing their language skills, the students in both countries are able to learn more about each other's culture through these letters. Marion students are also realizing just how much in common they have with teenagers from France. C'est fantastique!
