An Important Message

Back To School- La Rentrée

 

photo(13)

In France, just like here, everyone is getting ready to go back to school.  They call it La Rentrée and it almost feels like a special season.  Many people in France take their vacations in August and a lot of small businesses close for the month of August.  For a lot of people, September isn’t just about going back to school, it’s about going back to work and getting back into a routine.  Are you ready for La Rentrée?  Are you getting back to your routine?

Look around your house this week and see if there’s anything you might have that has French on it.  Here are some hints:  shampoo, make-up, cereal or macaroni and cheese boxes, calendars, even the tags in your t-shirts!  I think you’d be surprised to find a lot more French in your house than you realize!  Be ready to name something in your house that you found with French on it!

It’s Almost Time

In France and here, it’s almost time for La Rentrée, Back to School time!  What do you hope to learn in French this year?
