French Week

     As part of my foreign language requirement for my major, I am taking Beginning French this semester.  It has been an interesting ride.  It is definitely one of my harder classes.  I do not think that I possess that "knack" for languages that some people have.  This class is one that has required an additional amount of studying.  This being said, when the the opportunity for extra credit presented itself, I was immediately onboard! 
     Extra credit was offered through participation in French Week.  Activities were planned to showcase what we have learned in French so far and what can be expected in the future.  Kick-off to the week was a talk with Dr. Saunders.  Two students from the talk are pictured above.  She studied French as an undergraduate.  It goes to show you that a foreign language degree can lead you to all sorts of unexpected places.  The rest of the week consisted of an afternoon game of a traditional French past time as well as a night spent watching a French film and enjoying French food among other things.  Check out the Foreign Language Department!
