French Trip to Quebec

French Trip to Quebec
Pierce Barnett

From June 1-6, 8th and 9th graders travel to Quebec. If you want to sign up, there are still spots left. The priority is French students because the trip would be a good opportunity to develop their speaking skills, but all students are welcome.

 

The chaperones for this trip will be Dr. Bellew and Mrs. Luke. Quebec is a French-speaking province of Canada filled with many historic sights. You will begin flying from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport to Montreal’s Pierre-Elliott-Trudeau International Airport. 

 

Students who partake in this event earn .25 academic credit hours that will appear on their academic transcripts. To secure a spot on the trip, you need to deposit $500 initially. The cost is $3,750 per student, including plane tickets, transportation, room, board, and entry fees. At the hotel, a security guard will be present.

 

Studying abroad could help you with job interviews, language proficiency, and hands-on outside-the-classroom learning. Speaking of hands-on outside-the-classroom learning, you will have opportunities to go on tours, make your own maple butter, and practice improv.

 

This year’s trip to Quebec is a great learning experience and a chance to expand your cultural horizons while having fun spending time with your friends. If this sounds interesting, take advantage of this opportunity.
