Both classes (4e & 3e) of optional English ("European section") had first prepared in class the various visits of their trip to Britain program. With some of their classmates, they then took part in the trip to Britain from Monday, April 7th (really early morning !) to Thursday, April 11th (really late at night !). The pupils were accommodated in groups of 2,3 or 4 in some host families of the South-eastern London district of Plumstead (Eltham) : they were warmly welcomed and spoke English with their hosts over their breakfast and dinner, and were given some packed lunch so as to go sightseeing during the day.
What an enriching experience for all of them !
