Saegertown High School’s French I students presented their chapter projects on Wednesday, February 25 in the cafeteria. The assignment required students to create a French cafe.

After designing menus and dialogue sheets, the cafes were opened to the student body and faculty members during periods seven and eight. French students served coffee, sandwiches, ice cream, and other food products to their peers. “This experience, when it goes well, requires my French I students to stretch their language skills because they aren’t allowed to speak English during the cafe, and they have to make their customers speak French too,” said French teacher Mr. Nathan Youngblood.

Participants were graded on their French speaking skills and their ambition to make their customers speak as well. “It’s fun but really hard to keep up with everyone that comes,” said freshman Rachel Lance.
