Voici leur reportage :
We met Christina Schilling who is Canadian: She was very happy to see us, she smiled all the time. She has wavy hair and brown eyes. She is nice, helpful, a good listener, open-minded and funny. She took many photos during her visit. She is a FSL teacher and lives in the countryside.
We chatted and asked her some questions :
Ewan: What is the temperature in Canada at the moment?
Christina: It’s snowing and it’s cold. I live in the countryside and there is snow up to the knee. It is about minus 10°C.
Léa : How do the pupils have lunch in your school ?
Christina: They take their lunch box with them.
Clara: What time do they start and finish school?
Christina: They start at 9 and finish at 3:30
Jeanne: Do Canadian pupils learn other languages at school than French and English?
Christina: Not in Middle School but in High School they can choose another language.
She also asked us some questions:
Elle nous a aussi posé des questions :

Christina gave us presents: maple syrup, a pen with her school logo and candies. We thanked her and she gave us some tips to learn English : watch movies or series in English with French subtitles, read books in English, listen to English songs…
We had a very good afternoon with a delicious "café gourmand" and we were very happy to show our school and meet her.
