Our Summer 2016 trip to France was awesome. There are always ups and downs in overseas trips, and we did have our fair share of bumps along the way. I really feel like it's those bumps that prove to be the most memorable and teach us so much. I can now say that I have truly been immersed in the LOVE that Europeans have for le football! Students were challenged to live with French host families and live as French students, and I truly believe that they will have a whole new insight, not to mention empathy to foreign exchange students they meet back home. I am so proud of the many moments I witnessed in which my students used French with locals to communicate.
