Between June 14-23, twenty five Trinity Hall students and four faculty chaperones traveled to Paris, France and Barcelona, Spain to develop cross-cultural understandings for our students through international travel, cultural immersion, and language immersion. In France, the days were spent visiting numerous sites, museums, monuments and churches, including a day trip to Normandy. In Spain, activities included Flamenco dancing, a cooking class, and a day at the beach. In both cities, students enjoyed the local cuisine and practiced communicating in the local language.
The trip was planned in partnership with the A La Carte Travel.
Anne-Sophie Lehman, Trinity Hall world language teacher and the leader of this international trip, said, “Spending nine days in Paris and Barcelona allowed our students to practice and improve where the language and culture come to life. The joy of Europe is that you can travel a mere few hours and wind up in a whole new world, with a new culture, language and way of being. Our group of 25 students and four chaperones embraced the differences; we enjoyed chatting with locals, eating and cooking regional dishes, shopping, visiting landmarks as well as navigating in new environments. Our journey was an amazing success thanks to every participant’s willingness to step out of their comfort zone and also A La Carte Travel’s expertise. The chaperones couldn’t be more proud of the students!”
