Larry’s Adventure in France:
Dia dhaoibh ar maidin,
Larry anseo! Táim féin is m’chairde ag dul go dtí an Fhrainc inniu.
It might be rainy here this morning in Ireland but we are hoping for good weather in Saint Gilles Croix de Villes.
We have arrived at Dublin airport, checked in and have gone through security. We had a big breakfast and bought some goodies and books at the shop!
Here we all are relaxing as we wait for our gate number to be announced.
We plan to go for a walk around St. Gilles before bed this evening.
I have some questions for you. I want to know what the population of Saint Gilles is and can you work out what the time difference is between Ireland and Saint Gilles? Also, what is the weather forecast is for the week in Saint Gilles?
Beidh mé ag caint libh arís amárach!
Do chara Larry an leipreachán bheag.
Dia dhaoibh a gcairde go léir!
An dara lá anseo i Saint Gilles agus tá a lán déanta againn.
This morning we woke at nine and had a lovely French breakfast in the hotel. Cheese, ham, croissant and fresh fruit were some of our choices!
Larry ‘is an foireann Cluain Tuiscirt anseo sa Fhrainc!
Haigh gach duine!
Larry agus a gcairde anseo! Bheul bhíomar an-ghnóthach inniu i St. Gilles!
Thank you to Mr. O Riordan, Ms. Scott, Ms. Baynes and all the students for your reading and responses. Les and Cedric say ‘Bonjour’ to Mr. O Riordan!
Rose there are lots of nice shops here and we bought some nice presents yesterday! Your forecast was incorrect! Sunny and no rain today!!! Yay!! We are getting to use our sunscreen! Hi to you too Eggie!
Today we started with a walk to the school. It is called Edmond Boqcier. Can you find out some information about the school?
The Comenius coordinators made presentations to Cedric today.
We heard traditional French music from Laurent and Amelie. What instruments are they playing? Laurent’s instrument is very rare and only 20 people play it in France! Can you find our more about it?
Bhuel, Conas atá sibh i gCluain Tuaiscirt? Anseo, táimíd ar mhuin na muice!
Thanks to Mario and Little Star for your replies! C’est super!
We will of course teach you the dance! Bloom and Daisy Flower were especially good at the dancing and will make great teachers! We will post up a photo of the hotel for you. Learn more about it here: http://bit.ly/1tkbjkd
Last night we visited a tapas bar and had some amazing food. Check it out here!
This morning we met Cedric and went via bus to the salt marshes. Here we learned about the traditional process of reclaiming salt from the sea. Can you find out why this is so special to St. Gilles?
