Middle School Students Use Their French For Kindness

This holiday season was tough for many during Covid times, especially for the elderly who were unable to visit safely with their family and friends.
French students in 6th and 7th grade, in response to requests for holiday cards from nursing homes in Québec and in Paris, passed on a gesture of kindness in the form of a drawing and some warm words. Not only was this a great way to practice their French, but more importantly, the students learned that their words have the capacity to make someone’s life a little bit better.
