Students in Madame Behrens’s 8th grade French classes welcomed a guest speaker and enjoyed learning about L’Ile Maurice, a French speaking island off the southern coast of Africa. Dr. Praveen Parboteeah grew up on this small island in the Indian Ocean which is known as Mauritius Island in English. French is just one of the three languages that he speaks! His presentation was highly engaging, and students reported that they enjoyed learning about this beautiful island, including its customs, religions, and foods. A big “Merci beaucoup” to Dr. Parboteeah for visiting us!
