Week 1 in Brest

We have been in France for a week already! Time flies, our French skills are constantly challenged and, as a result, improving. Taking culture, grammar, linguistics and literature classes takes our mornings. Having wonderful and delicious gourmet meals at l’AILE gives us energy to keep going in the afternoons. Leisure time to explore the city of Brest enables us to tap into our adventurous side. And dinner and conversations with host families nurtures our connection to family. We also went on excursion to La Pointe de Pen-Hir and the city of Concarneau.

 Next week we’ll start with afternoon activities in preparation for the farewell party. Choir, dancing, theater and more will take us more in depth into French history, art, melody and fun.

A picture is worth a thousand words. So instead of writing a book, we have decided to share the following link:
