Entre nous
Chers Collègues et Chères Collègues,
Nous venons offrir nos félicitations aux étudiants du Queensland, Patrick Forrest et Alexander
Look, qui ont gagné le premier prix au concours de La coupe de Rugby organisé par
l’Ambassade de France. Ils iront assister à plusieurs matchs en France lors de la Coupe du
Monde. Je n’oublie pas de féliciter aussi tous ceux parmi vous qui ont encouragé et aidé vos
étudiants en classe à y prendre part. Il a fallu vous y investir avec enthousiasme et verve pour
les motiver et les encourager. Ça devient un couteau à double tranchants : si nous voulons que
nos étudiants participent aux compétitions, il nous faut les aider, leur donner le temps
nécessaire pour s’y mettre, conseiller, suggérer, corriger tout en continuant à faire progresser la
classe toute entière! C’est donc du travail supplémentaire mais c’est très méritant car les
étudiants y découvrent beaucoup de nouvelles connaissances. Ils développent leurs capacités
de travail coopératif en s’entraidant à faire des recherches et en utilisant les connaissances
particulières de chaque étudiant.
Le projet ILTLP (Intercultural Language Teaching and Learning in Practice) bat son plein.
Pour ceux qui s’y sont inscrits, bonne chance avec vos projets. En cas que vous n’en avez pas
entendu parler, visitez le site pour en savoir plus. http://www.iltlp.unisa.edu.au/ Vous y
puiserez des connaissances nouvelles mais aussi vous pourrez lire comment les professeurs se
sont investis dans des projets qui cherchent à développer la compréhension collective de
l’interculturel dans l’apprentissage et l’enseignement des langues. Vous y trouverez maints
exemples de projets de classes, dont quatre de Français, ainsi que des forums de discussions,
des contacts et des liens d’exploration, des unités d’apprentissage etc.
Pour le troisième trimestre nous vous offrons des ateliers sur Assessment and Reporting. Voyez
la page 3 de ce numéro. Vous pouvez vous y inscrire électroniquement après avoir consulté
votre chef de département ou votre directeur.
La première journée de Français au zoo de Taronga s’est
bien déroulée et les étudiants ont apprécié le beau temps, les
animaux – surtout les éléphants dans leur nouvel enclos –
ainsi que les classes présentées par les deux assistants qui
sont à Sydney, c'est-à-dire Sandrine et Raphaël qui eux aussi
ont fait une première expérience des animaux australiens.
Nous vous souhaitons un très bon trimestre.

INFORMATIONS
The 2007 Year 10 scholarship winner to France is…...
……Alistair Inglis, of St Ignatius College, Riverview. In
term 1 of this year, Southern Cross Cultural Exchange sent an
invitation to language teachers of Year 10 students of French,
German, Italian and Spanish, inviting language teachers to
nominate promising students of their chosen language in a
bid to win a full scholarship, semester program as an
exchange student.
Over 350 nominations were received from all over NSW,
with 10 students making it to the top 10 final. These finalists
were asked to come to a Scholarship Selection day which
was held in Sydney CBD on 8th May 2007, and involved
many activities including debates, general knowledge quiz, individual speeches and a
chance to practise speaking French over lunch.
The ten finalists were: Angus Judd, John Paul College, Coffs Harbour; Jessica BelleKeogh, Rosebay Secondary College; Charlotte McKenzie, Tara Anglican School for
Girls; Laura Muir, Northern Beaches Secondary College, Manly Campus; Rafael
Willitts, Waverley College; Helen Burak, Merewether High School; Kimberley Connor,
St.Philips Christian College, Waratah Campus; Alexandra Forsyth, Stella Maris College;
Alistair Inglis, St. Ignatius College Riverview and Anna Andronikashvili, Riverside
Girls High School.
Alistair Inglis was the chosen winner, and will be taking off to France in September for
a 5 month program immersed in the French way of life. He will be staying with a
volunteer host family and attending a local high school, which he is most
excited about. We wish him every success.
S.C.C.E. offers long and short programs to 14 different countries. The
programs offered in the summer holidays are from as short as 6 weeks,
through to the popular 2 or 3 month programs. There are of course,
longer programs of 5 months or 10 months to choose from also.

Celebrating France-Australia-Europe connections
The Ambassador of the Delegation of the European Commission to Australia and New
Zealand, Mr Bruno Julien, launched the French Connections Day at RMIT University in
Melbourne in May 2007.
Ambassador Julien spoke about cross-cultural exchange stating, “Cross cultural
exchanges are fundamental to the growth not just of the EU but to the whole world.
This is particularly the case in a country like Australia so committed to multiculturalism.
The European Union is about diversity. It is about
promoting what is best in every nation and
sharing this with others. It is about reaching out to
other continents to give and take with them.”
The French Connections event coordinated by
RMIT University, The University of Melbourne,
Monash University and La Trobe University, in
conjunction with the Embassy of France, was
designed to highlight and strengthen existing
relationships in the area of mobility of students,
teachers and researchers between Australia and
France.
Ambassador Julien spoke on ‘France – Australia
– Europe: developing partnerships in higher
education' . He said, “This year marks the start of
the EU's Lifelong Learning Program which will run from 2007-2013 and its budget of
nearly 7 billion euro will be used to fund projects and activities that support millions of
individuals to study, train and teach abroad as well as foster interchange, cooperation
and mobility between education and training institutions and systems. Education and
training are the cement that binds societies together in the face of economic and
demographic change.
Through our EU-Australia bilateral program, over 500 students have travelled across
the world to undertake courses in Australian and European universities. Under this
program, Australian universities have partnered with many institutions across Europe.
Research and education will remain a central pillar of our cooperation. Not only do we
see this as an economic imperative to ensure Europe's growth, but it is also a social
imperative.”
On the France-Australia bilateral relations in education, Ambassador Julien said, “I
know that France and Australia also have a wonderful co-tutelle program. Co-tutelle
students not only have their studies jointly supervised by academics from both French
and Australian universities but, if successful, the students are awarded a joint or double
badge degree.”

Overseas study
Have you been considering further study? Do you talk to your students about their
studies and their plans for the future?
The EU offers students a chance to study overseas.
31 scholarships have been awarded to students and scholars in Australia and New
Zealand under the European Union's Erasmus Mundus program for Masters Courses
starting in the academic year 2007-2008.
These students and scholars are part of a total number of 1,825 students and 273
scholars selected by the EU to participate in the program which now has 80 European
Masters Courses. Universities from 23 European countries take part in Erasmus
Mundus as well as 13 non-EU countries.
Each of the students will study at two of the universities belonging to an Erasmus
Mundus consortium. The scholarships are worth €21,000 (about $A33,200) per
academic year and include travel and living costs.
C.2 "Erasmus Mundus" scholarships
Each Erasmus Mundus master program offers scholarships for students coming from
outside the European Union. Australian students interested in applying for these
scholarships should contact the universities managing the Erasmus Mundus program.
The list of the programs selected and funded by the European Union and the contacts
for the programs are on the following websites:

Le 31 mai 2007 La Journée mondiale sans Tabac
Comment avez-vous vécu cette journée dans vos écoles et dans votre communauté? À
partir de juillet il ne sera plus possible de fumer à l’intérieur des hôtels et des clubs.
Ceux qui fréquentent ces établissements vont devoir sortir pour fumer.
Le tabac est la deuxième plus grande cause de mortalité dans le monde. On sait que la
moitié des fumeurs réguliers aujourd'hui, environ 650 millions de personnes, finiront
par mourir du tabagisme. Il est tout aussi alarmant de constater que des centaines de
milliers de personnes qui n'ont jamais fumé meurent chaque année de maladies dues à
l'inhalation de la fumée des autres.
À l'occasion de la Journée mondiale sans tabac, la France, qui a fait la moitié du chemin
en prohibant le 1er février la cigarette dans les lieux publics hors bars, cafés, restaurants
et discothèques, tire un premier bilan positif.
"Pas de fumée à l'intérieur", pour des espaces clos "100% non fumeurs", ce thème a été
choisi par l'Organisation mondiale de la santé (OMS) pour ce 31 mai. L'idée continue
de progresser en Europe: après le Pays de Galles et l'Irlande du Nord en avril,
l'interdiction de fumer dans les lieux publics est entré en vigueur en Angleterre le 1er
juillet. En Allemagne, fumer devrait être interdit à partir du 1er septembre dans les
transports publics et les bâtiments administratifs fédéraux.
En France, d'après les enquêtes conduites par 144 médecins du travail, le pourcentage
de salariés déclarant travailler dans des lieux totalement non-fumeurs (sans fumoir) est
passé de 42% en janvier à 71% en février, 80% en mars et un peu plus de 78% en avril.
Le décret a été un grand succès, y compris dans les universités, 88% des lieux
d'enseignement étant devenus totalement non fumeurs, et les établissements de santé
(92% totalement non fumeurs en avril). Toutefois, cette enquête ne repose pas sur un
échantillon représentatif de la population française, et la fonction publique en est quasi
absente, reconnaît le Pr Dautzenberg dans la dernière édition du Bulletin
épidémiologique (BEH).
Dans un éditorial, le directeur général de la Santé Didier Houssin, relève que la
publication du décret du 15 novembre 2006 a permis de "franchir une nouvelle étape
décisive" dans la lutte contre le tabac, tout en jugeant qu'il est "un peu tôt" pour évaluer
l'impact de cette mesure sur le plan sanitaire. Le Pr Houssin relève aussi "Avec 30% de
fumeurs dans la population générale, la France reste toutefois encore loin de l'objectif
de descendre à 20%", fixé par le Bureau régional Europe de l'OMS, "et des niveaux
atteints par certains autres pays développés, comme l'Islande (19,8%), le Canada (18%)
ou la Suède (16%)".
Avec plus de 66.000 décès annuels, le tabac reste la première cause de mortalité
évitable en France, rappelle l'Institut national de prévention et d'éducation pour la santé
(INPES) qui édite douze dépliants d'information ("arrêter de fumer sans prendre du
poids"...) à l'occasion de la journée mondiale sans tabac.

"80% des victimes d'infarctus avant 45 ans sont des fumeurs", met en garde la
Fédération française de cardiologie. Parmi les cafés, hôtels, restaurants et discothèques
où le décret ne doit s'appliquer qu'en janvier 2008, le pourcentage d'établissements
totalement non fumeurs est passé de 26% en janvier à 62% en avril, selon l'OFT, qui
relève que la pollution a également diminué dans ces lieux de convivialité.
JUNE 2007 | BANGKOK/GENEVA
More than 140 countries met in Bangkok, Thailand, to move forward the global tobacco
control agenda during the second session of the Conference of the Parties to the WHO
Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (WHO FCTC). The meeting took place
from June 30 to July 6 2007 in the United Nations Conference Centre in Bangkok.
Outcomes of the meeting will help countries to strengthen their tobacco control
programmes and practices, through indoor smoking bans, comprehensive tobacco
advertising bans and strict regulation of tobacco products.

La langue française enseignée de nouveau dans les écoles libyennes
La langue française figurera de nouveau dans les programmes scolaires en Libye, plus
de vingt ans après la suppression de l'enseignement des langues étrangères dans ce pays.
Un responsable libyen a expliqué :"L'enseignement des langues étrangères s'impose de
nouveau après le retour de la Libye sur la scène internationale, ainsi que pour la
promotion de sa politique panafricaine et l'amélioration des relations franco-libyennes".
Qualifiées de "langues des colonisateurs", le français et l'anglais, avaient été supprimés
des programmes scolaires en Libye en mai 1986, un mois après la fermeture des
départements de langues de l'Université de Tripoli. Les étudiants avaient alors détruit
les ouvrages en langues étrangères. Depuis trois ans, l'anglais est enseigné dès le
primaire en Libye.
Tintin au Congo, jugé "raciste", relégué au rayon "BD pour adultes"
Le groupe américain Borders a demandé à toutes ses librairies en Grande-Bretagne de
déplacer leurs exemplaires de l'album "Tintin au Congo" des rayons enfants à la section
des BD (bandes dessinées) pour adultes, après la dénonciation par une association
britannique de son caractère "raciste". La commission pour l'égalité raciale (CRE) a
jugé que la vente de cet album "dépassait l'entendement", dans la mesure où il contient
"des éléments potentiellement très choquants" pour beaucoup de lecteurs. "Ce livre
contient des images et des dialogues porteurs de préjugés racistes abominables” a
déclaré une porte-parole de la CRE.
Borders a affirmé de son côté que "des milliers de livres et de disques vendus peuvent
être considérés polémiques ou répréhensibles, en fonction des points de vue, des goûts
ou des intérêts des uns et des autres".

"Tintin au Congo", d'abord publié dans le journal belge "Le Vingtième siècle" en 19301931, est l'un des albums de la série dessinée par Hergé. Cet album du célèbre reporter
en culottes de golf a suscité de nombreuses polémiques, en raison de sa présentation
crue du colonialisme et du racisme, comme de la violence contre les animaux.
Hergé s'était justifié en affirmant qu'il n'avait fait que représenter l'état d'esprit
"paternaliste" de la Belgique coloniale.
A case for learning another Language! To be taken with a pinch of salt !
Source: Kwintessential Language and Culture specialists http://www.kwintessential.co.uk/
According to a recent report, Britons who learn a foreign language are richer, happier
and are regarded as more intelligent than those who can only speak English.
In the UK people who learn a foreign language earn an extra £3,000 a year - a total of
£145,000 over their lifetime. Companies are prepared to pay workers earning the
national average of £25,818 as much as 12% more if they speak or learn a foreign
language. For higher earners, the figures are even more startling. Those earning £45,000
could see a potential cash boost of 20%, amounting to an extra £9,000 a year or
£423,000 over a lifetime.
In addition, another survey found that people who learn or speak a foreign language are
also more attractive to others. Those who speak a foreign language were rated more
highly because they are considered to be more intelligent…
Tony Blair félicite Sarkozy sur Youtube en Français !
« Bonjour à tous. J'ai décidé de me risquer à vous adresser ce message en français, ce
qui est peut-être une bien mauvaise idée » commence un Tony Blair en tenue
décontractée dans sa vidéo de félicitation au candidat victorieux Nicolas Sarkozy,
postée sur Youtube. Cette vidéo montre aussi, la volonté du premier ministre Tony Blair
et de son parti, le Labour, de se rapprocher des internautes pour leur parler directement.
Dans cette optique, le parti travailliste a désormais sa page intitulée Labour:vision sur
Youtube. (Youtube is unavailable from schools but you may be able to watch it at
home).
La sécheresse
Si on souffre de sécheresse en Australie, la France aussi subit d’un manque de
pluviométrie et dans beaucoup de départements certains usages de l’eau seront limités
par des arrêtés de préfecture. Après un hiver marqué par l'absence de pluies et une
grande douceur, la situation était potentiellement catastrophique et le gouvernement
craignait de devoir à nouveau affronter une sécheresse de même ampleur que celle de
2005. Heureusement que la situation s’est stabilisée un peu au nord du pays grâce à de
fortes pluies en début juillet mais ‘la vigilance reste de mise’. Sur la côte

Les bébés bilingues
Selon une récente étude de chercheurs canadiens, dès quatre mois, les enfants sont en
mesure de distinguer un changement de langue en observant les expressions du visage
de celui qui leur parle. Cette étude est la première à montrer que les très jeunes enfants
ont aussi la capacité de faire des distinctions linguistiques avec seulement des indices
visuels. Les chercheurs ont testé trois groupes d'enfants âgés de quatre, six et huit mois
venant de familles anglophones monolingues ainsi que deux autres groupes âgés de six
à huit mois dont les parents sont bilingues, anglais-français.
Ils ont montré aux jeunes enfants une vidéo sans le son de personnes bilingues récitant
des phrases tout d'abord en anglais ou en français avant de continuer dans l'autre
langue.
Ces chercheurs ont constaté que l'attention des jeunes enfants âgés
de quatre et six mois durait plus longtemps quand les personnes
changeaient de langue. Cela montre que les bébés sont capables de
discerner le changement de langue en observant les formes des
lèvres et le rythme des mouvements de la bouche et du visage.
Cette capacité de reconnaissance visuelle des différentes langues
se perd apparemment au-delà de six mois chez ceux vivant dans une famille
monolingue alors qu'elle persiste chez les bébés de famille bilingue.

Girraween High’s Tour de France, Germany and Austria, January 2007
The adventure started on the plane to Vienna on the 29th of December. The ten Girraween
High and three Baulkham Hills High students soon got to know each other during the long
flight via Kuala Lumpur. On arrival in Paris the group headed by bus for the d’Artagnan
Youth Hostel where the next 7 nights would be spent.
That same day, after the first Métro train
experience, the group went walking around
central Paris, in order to keep awake, the first
stop being la Cathédrale de Notre Dame on
l’Ile de la Cité, then l’Ile St Louis, l’Hôtel de
Ville, Beaubourg, Forum des Halles and St
Eustache. During the week the students also
visited le Louvre, la Tour Eiffel, le Musée
d’Orsay, l’Arc de Triomphe, walked down les
Champs Elysées, had a ride on a bateau
mouche, went to le Palais de Versailles and
bought funny hats at Disneyland Paris.
Eight days later the group left Paris and caught the TGV to Montpellier, a modern and busy
city in the south of France. On arrival host families were waiting eagerly to meet their guests
from downunder. A day was spent getting to know the hosts before having the first taste of
French school life at College Gérard Philipe. This involved arriving at school early and going
home late, the French school day being very long and including a three course hot lunch,
eaten each day in the school cafeteria. There were also some excursions during the week in
and around Montpellier, plus to the medieval city of Carcassonne and the Roman Arena at
Nîmes (denim was invented there and exported to the USA: it is fabric de nîmes!!!). These
excursions were enjoyed by all and after a week everyone was very sad about leaving their
new found friends.
After a 14 hour journey and 2 train changes the group finally arrived at the Munich
Hauptbahnhof where all were anxious but excited to meet new friends, host students from the
Werner Heisenberg Gymnasium. To get to school many had to catch the very efficient u-bahn,
while some rode bikes. The school was one very large enclosed building with a new and

modern library. There were mural decorations,
coffee machines and table soccer facilities.
Outings included the 1964 Olympiapark to
watch a local ice hockey match, the Marienplatz
main square with Neues Rathaus and
Glockenspiel, Andechs monastery, Dachau
Concentration camp and King Ludwig’s
Bavarian castles. Added excitement was the
severe wind storm in the region which meant
that schools were officially closed.
Whilst in Munich an overnight trip to Salzburg,
Austria was planned. There, as well as the many sights the city has to offer, the group
splurged on the official “Sound of Music Tour” where many of the sights from the movie
were visited and famous songs were sung.
On returning to the hostel after having
eaten copiously in a typical Austrian
restaurant and doing Salzburg by night, the
group settled in to watch the film and play
“we went there”!!! The next day was an
organised tour of the Bad Durrnberg
Saltmine. [Salz means salt, burg means
mountain, salt was originally the white
gold of the area]. Visitors had to dress up
in white miners’ outfits, travel on a miners’
train and use steep/fun wooden slides to go
deep into the mine. (Anyone using Feuerwerk 2 text??) There was also the first real sighting
of snow in this mountain town and a good time was had by all. The last afternoon was spent
walking up the enormous hill to the Salzburg Castle, being sooo hungry afterwards (all cafés
were closed) that all had to race into the nearest McDonalds for sustenance, just enough time
to return to the hostel, collect baggage and take the train back to Munich. After a minor drama
or two (wrong train/snow track closure) the troops chugged back into Munich where it had
been snowing for 24 hours and the magic white stuff was everywhere! What fun!
The last evening soon arrived and it was farewell party time where, after eating their fill,
everyone joined in the biggest snow fight in front of the school. Unfortunately it was over too
soon and the group was at the airport before the break of day to head for home.
The trip was thoroughly enjoyed by all: Girras, Baulkos, Ms Stuart, Ms Bishop and Ms Lacey!
With thanks to best group of students ever!!!!!!!!!!!

2007 Coffs Harbour High School French Excursion to the Alliance Française and
Taronga Zoo in Sydney.
At seven o’clock in the morning on Sunday the 1st of April, a total of thirty six
students from Years 8, 9 and 10 French hopped on a coach outside Coffs Harbour
High School for a three day cultural and language learning expedition in Sydney. The
trip was surprisingly quick and enjoyable thanks to the modern conveniences of a
large bus with DVD screen, air-conditioning and other facilities. After a couple of
half hour stops, we arrived in Sydney shortly before three at the YHA, an
accommodation which has proved to be popular with all kinds of excursions from our
school over recent years.
An early departure meant that the
students had an opportunity to visit
Paddy’s Market nearby for a couple of
hours before dinner. The cultural and
ethnic mix of Sydney can be quite mindblowing to students from the country
and some had never visited the city
before. The alien bustle of their
newfound environment had the effect of
making affordable trinkets even more
alluring and intriguing than usual.
The following day, the students were up at eight to have a ‘big breakfast’ (the lot)
before taking a short walk up the street to the Alliance Française for classes. They
were taken through a program
celebrating ‘La Journée de la
Francophonie’ which constituted a range
of activities linking language and culture
through the distinct features of various
French speaking countries. These
included the beautiful buildings of
Morocco, the exotic tastes of North
Africa and the clothing of Lebanon.
Bright ceremonial dress, couscous and
photos of the Souk were some of the
items that came up for linguistic
scrutiny in a taste, touch, sight and sound extravaganza. The separate cultural
experiences were led by native hosts who played an integral part in the rendering of a
more encompassing perspective of ‘le monde francophone’ and the refined nature of
the language which binds all the countries together.
A little after noon, students were treated to the gastronomic delight of quiches and
crêpes provided by the in-house Grand Café of the Alliance Française. These were
followed by the most exquisite pâtisseries: little chocolate-lined tartlets with
deliciously sweet fillings, all decoratively covered with glaze and icing. Replete and
now full of verve, the whole group assembled outside to take a brisk walk down to

Circular Quay. From there we took a ferry across to Taronga Zoo and climbed aboard
the Sky Safari, a cable car drawn high up over the animal enclosures to a point at the
top of the hill near the front gates. The view was ‘awesome’ and made the downhill
walk past the various animal sections extremely easy, so the price for a Zoopass was
well worth it.
Prior to departure, Marie Ange Lewis from the
Languages Unit at Curriculum K-12 Directorate,
had kindly provided us with worksheets – in
French – specifically designed for the
key features of the zoo, right down to details
such as the names of some animals, numbers in
enclosures and eating, sleeping and behavioural
habits, all supported by useful vocabulary. It
was well-designed and made the afternoon very
meaningful in a ‘moving’ language sense as
young and old related naturally to our fellow
travellers on this planet.
The following day, the students returned to the Alliance for further lessons and
activities: lessons in pronunciation, comprehension, a treasure hunt, vocabulary
games and French songs. There was plenty of variety to cater for the different year
levels and having frequented the Alliance during my school years many years ago, I
can only recommend them for the valuable part they play in maintaining interest in
the French language within the Australian community. Tricia Coroneos and Pascal
Estrade were most welcoming and helpful throughout.
A final treat for the students as they departed Sydney at midday was to make a stop at
the renowned ‘La Ganache’ pâtisserie at Castlecrag. We had ordered and paid a full
week prior to departure for an assortment of pies, quiches, croissants, brioches,
baguettes and ‘chocolat chaud’. All was ready on time, hot and steaming in cardboard
trays. We hurried to a nearby park and consumed this delicious collation rapidly. The
authentic butter pastry was melt-in-the-mouth delicious and a real novelty to students
who were used to the usual bready slab from their local bakery. The voluminous
golden wave of a shape caught in mid-rise was deceiving to many and as a newspaper
article in the Herald once put it ‘gave readily way to a buttery sigh’, a fitting way to
express the overall mood of the excursion after we had arrived back in Coffs Harbour
in front of the school later that evening. In general, despite the inevitable juvenile
fatigue, we were left with many culturally uplifting experiences punctuated by the
occasional gastronomic delight.
For students from the country who don’t have the funds for a trip to Noumea or
Europe, this excursion (for a little over $200 per person), represents an opportunity to
see language in a more multicultural context and has been an incentive to their
developing interest in an elective subject.
Alexander Riske is the teacher of French at Coffs Harbour High School. He has
successfully managed to encourage students to keep up their language learning.

La Maison de Sainte Claire – Murwillumbah
Nestled in the caldera of extinct volcano, Mount Warning, you will find a little piece
of France: the home of Gilles and Zarina Berger, and their three gorgeous children.
Here you will discover an enchanting place to bring your students for an immersion
weekend of French with owner, tutor and chef Gilles, a man of huge passion for his
native tongue, a man of inspired thinking and a man with a flair for putting together a
program of activities to cater for your students’ needs.
I travelled there for an immersion weekend with my Year 12 French students (well,
five of them) and two year 10 students (to make up the numbers) on the weekend of
25-27 May. I had been exchanging emails with Gilles for some months beforehand,
as we nutted out the details of the visit, and so I felt that I already knew him a little
before I arrived with my students. Gilles did not disappoint. He and Zarina opened
their home to me and to my students. They made us feel completely at home comfortable in their kitchen, relaxed and happy lying on their lounge while we
watched French films in the evening, well rested in the delightfully converted train
carriages that are the guest accommodation. Quite simply, we became part of the
family.
It cost each student $255 for the weekend, but considering that we had two nights’
accommodation in lovely rooms, outstanding meals with fresh natural foods often
grown by the family themselves on their farm, French films, cooking sessions with
Gilles and Zarina, and two and half days of tuition and hands-on French activities, the
cost seems small indeed. Gilles and Zarina take a great deal of care to make each
participant feel comfortable and to provide everyone with highly instructive activities.
For us the trip was a mere one and a half hour’s drive from our school, through the
most amazing countryside along north coast back roads. We arrived at 4.30 pm in
time for afternoon tea, followed by French activities in Gilles’ classroom. Dinner was
then served in the main open living space of the house, with a French film afterwards
to take us through to bedtime.
For many schools, the trip would be much longer than ours, perhaps even
necessitating a flight north to Coolangatta airport with your French students, but the
trip will be worth it! And Gilles can even arrange to pick you up at the airport, and to
return you there for your flight home.
Here are some of my students’ thoughts about the weekend:
“We learnt a lot and the experience was good.” (Emily)
“The weekend was different and I enjoyed being in the company of other French
speakers.” (Matt)
“Gilles was a good teacher, and I learnt a lot in the 2-3 days – more than I thought I
would. I would have liked doing some more French cooking.” (Michael)
“The weekend that we spent at la Maison de Sainte Claire was really beneficial and I
would highly recommend it. I came home with a renewed desire for studying the

OSEF is an organisation which arranges exchanges between Australia and
France. For more information visit their website http://www.osef.fr
Extract from Anabelle’s testimony, a past student on exchange with OSEF.
I went to France at the end of 2005 with OSEF. As a part of my
exchange, I hosted my exchange partner earlier that year, so I knew well
in advance whom I was going to stay with. I found that hosting was an
important part of my exchange as I was able to both give and receive
cultural experiences. The family I stayed with lived in Orléans, and I was well
matched into a family with two sisters, similar to my own.
I had a really wonderful time with my French family who showed me different sites
but more importantly, who shared their everyday life, culture, language
and even Christmas with me! I really gained a lot both in terms of
language and experience through my exchange. It is important not to be
afraid about coping with the language; no matter how basic your French
is, you will pick it up very quickly!
OSEF looked after me really well and I always felt like they were available for me. I
was in contact with our chaperone throughout the 2 months. With OSEF, I also got to
spend a day seeing all the key sites of Paris!
I would really recommend an exchange with OSEF to anyone wanting to experience
France and improve their French!

une immatriculation européenne. Pour en savoir plus sur les plaques d’immatriculation

particulière (exemple : Québec « Je me souviens »).
