AFTER D.O.D.I. PROJECT 13 - A FEW COMMENTS

Both the student Lea and the primary school pupil (Raphaile?) were a pleasure to meet and upheld the fine qualities of politness that we find so refreshing in French children.

We enjoyed the whole day and even though dictation was not the best activity, it was good for us to have or french skills tested.

 

 

We enjoyed the day and found the different activities interesting and varied. Both Adele and Madison ( école primaire ) were very cooperative although Madison was more interested in talking /being with her friends.

On reflection and speaking as a retired teacher I wonder if it might have been a good idea when we were split up for the activities to have had a teacher with each group ( ie 3 members of staff ). They then could have taken overall responsibility for any issues arising such as discipline of any unruly students ,plus any emergency should one have occurred.

Anyway that was “juste une pensée”, 

 


Both girls were helpful, behaved well, polite and generally interested. Adeline, in particular, was very thorough in her work with good attention to detail. 

It was good to have time to chat to the girls. Having all the visits in the morning was better and there being fewer questions gave us more time to answer things in detail and check the written English.

PS A cup of coffee after lunch would have been most welcome!!!

 

 

A GREAT pleasure to meet and work with Mylene and Melissa.

Very conscientious!

Rosie and Lucille from Breuil-Barret were also very enthusiastic especially with the word 

puzzles for the songs and the dictation.

 


The people at the businesses that we visited were extremely enthusiastic at talking to us about their activities. They are very kind and supportive of DODI in giving a day out of their businesses to tell us about their work. It was very interesting to see businesses that are working in the area which we did not know about but which also tells the pupils about work in the areas near where they live.

 

 

The lady at the Sellerie was very kind in telling us so much about how dog collars etc are made. There is much more consideration about how this product is made other than sewing a strip of leather. We never understood that they take account of the health of the dog (or cat) in determining the lining of the collar, the dye of colour and its associated effects that may be had on the skin of the dog, the comfort of the dog’s neck under the buckle etc.

 

 

We enjoyed very much chatting to Stephanie, Ancelin and Emma over lunch. They were very happy to speak English with minimal correction and we enjoyed their company.

 

We have marked the dictation as the least favourite part of the day because we believe that we are at the project to help the pupils of the school not help ourselves to understand French. But the dictation was great to test our understanding of French and Stephanie and Emma helped us with the spelling and use of accents.

 

 

Well done for organizing a good day with the pupils and thank you to all your sponsors, who make it possible.

The two girls that I worked with were very nice and were interested in the all the activities. The only problem that I had was getting them to take notes as they seemed to think it was up to me to do that and that they just had to write the answers in the book.  I think that it was a misunderstanding on their part and nothing else.  We had an enjoyable day and the activities were interesting and fun. It was also nice to meet some of the primary school children and the girls tried hard to involve them in the activities where they joined us.  Thank you Vincent for yet another great day discovering our district.
