“Bonne rentrée!” I hope you had a lovely Easter break. I would love to hear from you all and to know if any of you have attempted the Easter activities I posted on the website. I am therefore inviting you to join our weekly live class via the Zoom platform. I have sent you the details (day, time and link to the meeting) via Hangouts and it is also posted in your google classroom.
So as I mentioned to your parents in an email yesterday, the work I am assigning you is to be done for the Monday of each week. I would however advise to do your assignment following your school timetable. I have therefore organised the assignment under each day of the week where you have a French class. At the moment you have the work for today and tomorrow, the rest of the week will be added here tomorrow. If this does not suit, feel free to pick another time as long as it does not interfere with your other timetabled classes and as long as the work is finished before next Monday.
Make also sure to come on Hangouts at least once every day to get up to date info about the French lessons/assignments, to ask your questions or even to just say “Bonjour!”.
I wish you all the very best for this last straight line before the Summer holidays and “A bientôt!”
