A couple of weeks ago, the Year 11 and Year 12 French classes embarked on a day of French language and culture learning! Whilst eagerly speaking French, and laughing at our terrible accents, the Year 11 and Year 12 French classes were eager to embark on a day of fun.

The excursion began with a bus ride to The Barracks in Brisbane. The first part of our agenda was to watch a French film titled, Roxane whilst soaking up the language and being captivated by a storyline about a hen and a farmer with theatre talent! After watching the hilarious film, we went to the restaurant Moda for lunch.

During lunch, a competition arose as to who could go the longest without speaking English. Of course, the almighty Year 12s reigned supreme. The delicious food and trying to speak French created a joyous atmosphere that we all enjoyed immensely. Although we sometimes struggled to understand each other, speaking in French throughout the whole excursion was a great learning experience. We are all appreciative for the amazing excursion.

Many thanks to Mrs Forsythe and Ms Morel for making this excursion possible.
