Did you know that in French, Sochi is spelled “Sotchi”?
Here is some wonderful and very exciting news. All students have been paired up with a Canadian athlete. This week, we are spending some of our class time writing personal messages to each one of them. We’ve selected athletes who speak French to allow the students to practice their French writing. These letters will be delivered to them when they are in Sochi, thanks to Chloë’s mom who connected me with a friend who will be filming many of the ski/snowboard events.
In case you’d like to find out more about the athletes, here’s a document I created. I spent quite a bit of time researching and adding to this document. If you happen to find anything that may interest the students (in French, preferably), feel free to add a comment inside that Google Doc.
