On Thursday, February 21, twentyFrenchhigh schoolstudentsfrom the Holy Cross high school St. Michel in Paris, accompanied by teachers came to Notre Dame. The teachers stayed with ND teacher Mme Stewart and theFrenchstudentsstayed with NDfamilies. While in Los Angeles, they took in some of the sights our city has to offer.
On February 22 and March 1, theFrenchstudentswere on campus and were given the opportunity to visit different classrooms at ND and experience firsthand the academic life of an NDstudent. TheFrench studentswere fluent in English and were able to understand our coursework. These classroom visits were beneficial for everyone--theFrenchstudents, the NDstudentsand even the teachers! It is hard to describe the experience except to say that it delivered a certain je ne sais quoi!
