to Vancouver's Prince of Wales High School
few months ago, I was contacted by Brigitte
Patenaude from Vancouver's Prince
of Wales High School. She asked me if
I'd be interested in participating in an interactive
Q&A with her students. The only catch was
that all the questions would be asked and answered
in French! Well, since French is my first language
and I'm in great need of practice, I thought
it would be fun and agreed to do it.
visit took place last Friday, October 1st, and
it was loads of fun. Each of the 23 students
asked one question and I tried answering the
best I could. Since this was a "Core French" class,
I was not allowed to say a word of English! Fortunately,
Brigitte helped me out whenever I got stuck and
the whole event went just great. I brought lots
of visual material for the students to look at
and they seemed very interested. The Insanely
Twisted Rabbits sculptures were a huge hit!
