A Day on the Lake

Due to inclement weather, the French Academy had to cancel its field trip on Monday. However, it was quickly rescheduled to today, so the students were able to easily bounce back from Monday’s temporary disappointment!

Today, students boarded a group of buses, after completing their set of morning classes. En route to Burlington, students and staff were filled with excitement for today’s events: a ferry ride on Lake Champlain and trip to North Beach!

Students Continue to Explore the Arabic Language and Culture

Arabic students continue to respect The Language Pledge® and explore Arabic culture in their classes and cultural exploration time. Today during cultural exploration a group of students analyzed Arab hospitality customs and used what they discovered to create skits which were then performed for their peers.

Spanish Students Visit Middlebury College!

Today, students from the Spanish Academy took a trip north to visit the campus of Middlebury College! We enjoyed a Flamenco performance and toured the beautiful Middlebury campus. An afternoon thunderstorm sent students to the Field House for some hoops and hanging out, but the skies cleared and allowed us to enjoy an outdoor dinner and pick-up soccer before heading back to campus.

Another Happy Day in Québec!

It started with a display of delicious food brought by our team leaders.  We had French croissants, chocolate croissants (chocolatines in Québec), crêpes, strawberries, coffee, melon, cherry tomatoes, blueberries, brie and chèvre cheeses, fresh baguettes, chocolate… It was a feast.

In the afternoon, students were exposed to another kind of feast: Montmorency Waterfalls, pure beauty of nature.  They dominate the landscape, 83 meters high (30 meters higher than Niagara Falls).  We are so lucky to be so close to these unique sites.

Students visit Village Vacances Valcartier, a water slide paradise!

Village Vacances Valcartier is a water slides paradise, 30 minutes away from the Laval University.  Our students experienced it the whole day.   The weather was on our side: it was sunny and warm from the beginning to the end of the filed trip.

Photos from the Assemblée Nationale!

The Assemblée Nationale opened its doors to MIL students yesterday.  It is located in the center of Québec and is inside a historical classified building, the Parliament.  There, they learned about  the history and activities of Québec’s Parliament.  This serious visit was followed by free time, dinner with friends  and attending free concerts  in old Québec.

Food week in Québéc!

This week will undoubtedly be everybody’s favorite: it’s food week!!!!! After their food shopping for the 4th of July dinner yesterday, students went to an open market today. A questionnaire in hand, students asked merchants questions in French while discovering Québécois delicacies. To name a few, our lucky students had French crêpes with maple syrup, bio sausages, ice cream dipped in chocolate... It was a tasty afternoon.
