Immersion Weekend 2015
The AATF-Ohio Immersion Weekend celebrated its 12th anniversary this past September. Approximately twenty teachers gathered in beautiful Mohican State Park for a wet end-of-summer weekend. Even though the weather wasn’t super, teachers and friends did have a good time chatting, watching francophone films, and playing and learning new French card games. We also enjoyed a nice potluck dinner thanks to the tasty francophone dishes all participants brought!
A special thank you to a few key people who really help pull off this fantastic weekend. Wendy Duffy kindly prepared three different soupe estivale all hungry participants arriving Friday evening. Karine Daddah, our secrétaire/trésorière handled all the logistics, shopping and communication leading up to the weekend. Merci beaucoup à vous deux!
Think about joining us next year for the 2016 Immersion Weekend. You can also get 10 contact hours. Dates and other information to be shared soon. Email our secretary-treasurer Karine Daddah to pre-register or if you have questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
