This summer, a small group of 6.2s from the French department visited Paris on 21 to 25th August. Jack Barclay (A), Alex Alder (J) and Stash Samoilys (B) were tremendous ambassadors for the College. We were warmly hosted by Aurélie Miaud (Radley’s French assistant 2014-15) and Colombe Deveaud (Radley’s French assistant 2015-16) who helped to put the boys through their paces with grammar and oral presentations. The boys engaged fully with the programme and Aurélie Miaud and Colombe Deveaud were both impressed by how willing the boys were to engage with the work and to help with domestic duties such as cooking and clearing away. We managed to cover quite a few of the sights and we had an interesting but stretching evening at "Paname", a stand-up comedy club which really challenged the boys' understanding of language as well as cultural references.
