Aidan responding to students' questions in French

Students at l'Ecole Française du Maine celebrated "La semaine de la Francophonie" by communicating over the internet in French with three former students of the school now attending the renowned French School "Lycee Pierre Loti" in Istanbul, Turkey. Students had prepared questions about what could be the life of a Maine student attending a French school in Turkey. The session lasted over an hour and was conducted entirely in French: a great way to celebrate International French Week! Our students were happy to share the news about the new playground and wished their friend a great last trimester before their return to Maine.
