A Tasty Lesson in French

Students in Faye Galopin’s French II class recently made crepes as a tasty way to immerse themselves into francophone cultures and issues. “The crepe-making allowed us to learn some new vocabulary and learn how to convert French measurements to the American system,” said Galopin. “The students have also learned about other cultural components of high school exams in France, including, ‘Le bac,’ short for baccalauréat, which is an important exam that gives students access to universities.” Students also learned about social tensions created by immigration into France, as well as the many difficulties of cultural and racial integration within the country.
