Au Revoir!

July 22, 2017

And that is a wrap! All our students left today, and we already miss them! What a great month we all had. And to conclude the 2017 Nantes Summer Academy, we wanted to do a post with all the best moments of the program.

The first week was all about starting slowly with French and getting to know the staff and the campus. During this week they took their Language Pledge, visited the city centre and Trentemoult, played some great games with the RAs, and went to Saint Malo and le Mont Saint-Michel!

Week 2 was all about the city! They had a cruise, visited les Machines de l’Ile, Nantes Castle, had a great activity with the RAs, a barbecue with French families, visited the Chateaux de la Loire, learned how to dance Brittany's traditional dance, and had a party!

Students were getting more and more involved with French and French life at this point! During week 3, they went to the Nantes farmers market, a castle, a mill, had a cooking class, a medieval afternoon, and introduction to the DOM TOM culture, and went to a theme park. They also had a great Bastille Day!

And it was already the last week of the program which included a festival, some free time in the city, a farewell dinner, followed with a party and some dances!

What a month! We really all had fun and we hope you enjoyed following this blog! See you next year for even more adventures and French!
