Year 12 IB French - Etiquette and French Cuisine

  • French Restaurant Trip 2017
  • French Restaurant Trip 2017

On Friday 16th June, French food and table manners “à la française” were the order of the day. The Year 12 French Ab Initio students have been discussing table manners in French for the past week, and how they can be different or similar in various countries. As the students were studying the topic of food, we decided to put what they learn in practice. What better way to accomplish this than sharing a meal of various French dishes in a French restaurant located on our doorstep!

Having had a look at the menu, some of the students decided to select dishes they were not particularly familiar with, such as “escargots” for example, while others could not pass up the opportunity to enjoy a “steak/frites”.  All through the meal, they were very aware of their table manners reminding each other when needed and naming different dishes in French.

It was a fun and practical way to enjoy learning out of the classroom environment.
