In the World Language Department of Arlington Public Schools, we seek to develop in
students the ability to communicate effectively, think critically, and participate actively
and responsibly in a multilingual global society.
French students in Véronique Lahey's French 4 class competed last week in the popular Café Parisien project, presenting their proposals to a jury of judges. A year-long project, students must prepare a business proposal for a new café or restaurant in Paris (of course, this must be entirely in French!). Details are crucial, and students must include financial models, a restaurant layout, a marketing plan, a menu, and sample food for the judges to taste during their presentation.
Félicitations to this year's winners: Marie Olland, Arianna Fiorentini, and Tarangana Thapa
