• Summer break

    Please post any photos you may have of the little show on June 14th. I don't know exactly when Apple Tree will resume its activities in September. As of now, there aren't enough children to form a group on Wednesday morning, BUT, once again, I have older children - or rather their parents - asking for "lessons". I hesitate to take on collégiens. In general, they are not interested in participating orally in English.Those at lycée level are, but seeing as the French teaching system leaves them so lacking in confidence and tongue-tied, it really is an upward struggle to try and get children of this level to put two words together. I'm not blaming their English teachers. I'm blaming the programme hashed together by succesive ministers of Education and then imposed on these young people. Don't you find it shocking that a French youngster - now - can have 10 years of English lessons and still be unable to understand even the most basic information let alone express even a very simple idea? I know why, but the likes of Luc Chatel doesn't!

    I'll contact you all in September so we can decide on times for English. If you know of any children who might be interested, please give them my  email address.

    Have a good holiday!
