Derry students ready to put their French skills to the test in Quebec
Forty-six French students, from beginner to advanced, are scheduled to leave for the trip on Friday, Jan. 24, and return on Sunday, Jan. 26, said Stacey Hourihane, a Pinkerton French teacher.
Some students might have French-Canadian parents and some knowledge of French, but for most students, their knowledge and use of the language is limited to the classroom.
“It’s learning, but it’s also life experiences,” Hourihane said.
Students are scheduled to return home on Sunday.
