A Visit to the Purple Bamboo Park, Interacting with Locals, and Exploring New Culture Classes

Julia E:

This morning, students had the opportunity to explore the Purple Bamboo Park nearby the university where they connected with the locals: asking the locals what activities they enjoyed doing at the park in the morning. Excited by these opportunities to explore the Chinese culture, many students decided to join the various activities that were held at the Purple Bamboo Park such as boat riding.

Au revoir, Québec!

In Québec, we are very lucky: we are not far from the water. So, what a treat to have our final ceremony on a boat. It was an evening filled with emotions: realizing it is over, finally speaking English, but also discovering Québec from another angle, leaving new friends and so much more.

Thank you, Québec for welcoming us a second time and giving us all the opportunity to discover French and French culture outside of France. However, it is not adieu, it is à tantôt and just the first steps of a lifetime bilingual life.

In level 4 Academic classes we have been discussing very deep and challenging topics in the last couple of weeks.

Mudejar Art: A Cultural Exploration Class

During the past two weeks, students at the academy who took the Mudejar ceramics class learned about Mudéjar art, a style that is native and unique to the history of Spain, and a meeting point between Christianity and Islam. Mudéjar refers to the Muslims who continued to practice their religion and their customs in the territories that became part of Christian dominions such as Granada, the last Moorish bastion in Spain before the Spanish Reconquest in 1492. The materials, techniques, and formal elements of Islamic artistic work left their stamp on the architecture of Spain.

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.
