Une invitée iviorienne

Today, thanks to Jeb and his dad, we had a special guest visit us from La Côte d’Ivoire during our C period class.  Madame Eugénie is visiting the United States to help her son celebrate his PhD.  She spoke to us about the difficulties of obtaining a visa to come to the United States, about her village, the foods eaten in her country, and her previous work helping mothers have their babies in the local hospital.  Through her hospital work, she learned to understand 15 different languages so that she could help people communicate!  Nous vous remercions d’être venue nous parler de votre vie, Madame.  C’était un vrai plaisir de vous avoir parmi nous ce matin et nous vous souhaitons un très bon retour dans votre pays.

Une invitée

Today we had a special guest from Paris, Rose Komla, who came to talk to the French C classes.  All of the students did a great job welcoming her, asking great questions, and suggesting what she might do in Atlanta while she visits…all in French!  Guy S. found out they had something “en commun” as they both ran or run the 100 meter dash.  Rose even spoke a bit of Eve, the language of Togo, so the students could hear how cool it sounds.
