Students visited one of the largest mosques in France in order to explore a religion and culture with increasing influence in modern French society. Located in the 5th arrondissement of Paris and operated by the French government, this mosque reflects an important feature of life in Paris.
Our students embarked on a tour of local bakery Chez Julien to see the inner workings of a real french boulangerie. Head chef Christophe proudly explained his craft and allowed the students to participate in some of the day-to-day tasks. They were able to cut the baguettes before putting them in the oven, and at the end were allowed to taste a freshly cooked “tradition.”
Students experienced a more modern side of the French artistic tradition at the Palais de Tokyo. Featuring a new exhibition entitled “Nouvelles Vagues,” the Palais de Tokyo offers fun and interactive art, providing the students a different perspective on the Parisian art world. As an added bonus, on our way we had a great view of the Eiffel Tower!
Paris à travers les âges is one of our popular french immersion courses here at l’Académie de Paris. The teacher Marie, has shown students via trips around the city, how Paris has changed throughout history. Check out the photos of Marie’s class touring Paris!
