From January 27th-30th, 43 French World Language students from Kenmore East and Kenmore West had the opportunity to visit and explore Québec City!

Québec City was founded in 1608 and is one of the oldest cities in North America. Students participated in a variety of activities, which included tubing, snowshoeing and dog-sledding. They also saw famous sights such as the Château Frontenac, St. Anne de Beaupré Basilica, Old Québec, and the only Ice Hotel in North America.

During the last night of the trip, students had a traditional Québecois meal at the sugar shack. They enjoyed playing traditional music on wooden spoons and folk dancing. The night ended with la tire sur neige, a treat where warm maple syrup is poured on snow.

Students had a fantastic time and were even able to apply their knowledge of French in the real world!
