Skype in French Lessons

Our class, 9bFr1 has set up a Skype link with a school in Lyon.

 Here at Cardinal Wiseman, French is a key part of the curriculum. We learn it in various ways and the best way (I think) is to actually speak the language and interact with others by using it in context.

Our class, 9bFr1 has set up a Skype link with a school in Lyon. We speak in groups of two or three using the iPad with the French students either in English or French each Thursday about the topics that we study in class. Thus, it benefits them and us. Not only does it help us with our education, it also gives us a great opportunity to learn about the differences in cultures and traditions.  I also enjoy understanding about the similarities between the young people of England and France. We are a Year 9 set one and we are taught by Mr Bird. Some of the Year 9 French students are going on an exchange to Lyon on December 3rd 2014. How exciting!
