After a fabulous hike, an interesting castle visit, some fun in the sun (or should I say fog) at the beach, a scrumptious gelato, a bus ride home, a family-style pasta dinner, and a shower, Twolousers were ready to take on the challenge of reppin' the USA at the fête... Continue reading

Chateau Royal has a long history (as I'm sure you could have guessed) that Twolousers got to learn about after their amazing(ly steep and beautiful) hike from Port Vendres to Collioure. Seeing the fortress/ castle/ wonderment in the distance, students got a sick panoramic post card view before getting to... Continue reading

After a productive day of class where students learned about clothing, colors, materials, and trends, it was time to put this knowledge to use! I'm not sure if you are au courant (in the know), but in Europe, they use different clothing and shoe sizes. You can find yours here!... Continue reading

PL Becca back at it again with the laser quest game! This time, it was SURE that Team Donald would dominate. I mean, having lost 4 out of 4 games with my previous two trips to Laser Quest, the odds HAD to be in my favor, right? Hang on to... Continue reading

Twolousers navigated their way, via metro AND bus (double whammy!) to Cité de l'Espace for a day full of SPACE. * Insert astronaut sounds.* We were trudgin' a little more slowly than normal... we had pretty much all popped, locked, and dropped it (especially Christopher) at our dance class the...

PL Becca here! So, I totally nerded out with Eric on our tour on Friday afternoon. Taking notes, asking questions, snappin' artsy photos, the whole shebang! The history of Toulouse is SO INTERESTING. Last session, I didn't get the chance to do the architectural tour because I was bloggin' away... Continue reading

After a long holiday weekend with families, Twolousers were excited to share pictures and stories about the excursions they went on with their host moms and dads as they met yet again for class bright and (semi) early Monday morning. There was much work to do! Conducting informal oral interviews... Continue reading

PL Becca comin' at you for Round 2 in Toulouse! Welcoming half-asleep and jet-lagged Toulousers to their first day of orientation was an easier task for me this time around! I had just come back from a four-day vacation (maxin' and relaxin' in Nice, Grasse, Eze, Cap Ferrat) to see... Continue reading

PL Becca comin' in hot with the Aeroscopia blog! I called dibs on writing the blog for Aeroscopia because it was legitimately the coolest thing EVER. Learning the history of aviation and where new frontiers we are approaching was honestly the best follow-up to Cité de l'Espace. Our minds were... Continue reading

"High-five for making it to the top of the hill!" - Maddie On Saturday night, Toulousers (now PortVendrers???) had a blast! After coming back from an awesome hike/ excursion to Collioure (fun in the sun, catchin' up on So-Franc's artisan ice cream, etc), students enjoyed another meal prepared by Paul.... Continue reading

The Toulousers learned how to break it down, pop it, lock it, drop it and do whatever else they wanted with it! Students successfully traveled as a group of almost 30 on the metro to arrive just outside the city center at a hip dance studio. Our first trip all... Continue reading

Les filles américaines (Bailee, Emma, Emily, and Sophia) au parc! After lunch, Toulousers all met back up to visit the Jardin des Plantes, a large green beautiful park located near the city center. Sure, New York has Central Park and Chicago has Grant Park, but there is nothing quite like... Continue reading

Bailee and Cheyenne hangin' out by the paper! And they're off.... to school! Summer break came to halt for the Toulousers as their leveled-classes started today at the Institut Catholique. Levels 1 and 2 focused on learning about objects- school supplies, bedroom furniture, and kitchen supplies. So, what better place... Continue reading

Day 2 of Orientation... and what better way to help us get oriented than a historical tour of the city?! I'm telling you- our tour guide, Eric, left no question unanswered. A professor of architecture and history, Eric knew so much about the city that he even captured the French... Continue reading
