St Mary’s and Sean lead way
A DROGHEDA school is one of three Irish schools involved with a new French programme which will see European students practising their language skills by phone and computer.
Mr. Scan Higgins, French teacher in St. Marys Diocesan School, is now busy organising a cross-European French language programme for a class of fifth year students starting in September 1991 for a one term period.
“The idea of the project is to make French more accessible to students and to help them come into contacl with other European students from Belgium, France and Great Britain through the medium of French,” says Mr. Higgins.
“What makes the programme particularly distinctive here is that students in St. Marys will communicate with fellow European students through the use of the phone and computer,” he adds.
As well as general communication links with European schools, St. Marys will also make a particular link-up with a French school as it is a particular objective of the project to develop exchanes between Irish and French schools.
