Nice Summerfuelers finish up Week 1 of classes with a splash!
4thof July found Summerfuelers by the waterside, donning sparklers and dipping into the cool Mediterranean waters. Even our non-American student participated in the American Independence Day fun (French-style and seaside, of course).
Studio Art and French class both brought students to examine French culture. In Studio Art, students drew sections of the Old Town (Vieille Ville) neighborhood with art teacher, Cyril. In French class, Summerfuelers discussed French film and tried a local dessert, Tourte de blettes (Swiss Chard Tart) with language teacher, René. Students in Nya’s French course also continued to polish their language skills by speaking to a local their age in the classroom setting.
Summerfuelers in Nice ended their work week with team-building activities: tubing (chosen by these daring and fun-loving students!) and laser tag (as a member of the yellow team, I, your author, believe this team won for having most heart!).
This first week still has more in store for Summerfuelers and staff alike, including weekend excursions! Summerfuelers will dive deeper into the region’s cultural history with tours of a nearby chapel and Medieval town. It’s been more than nice to be in Nice!
