Bienvenue: French Academic Year Programs

BONJOUR ET BIENVENUE AU LAC DU BOIS!

Bienvenue au Lac du Bois – French Academic Year Programs in Bemidji, Minnesota. We are excited to present French immersion programs for elementary, middle, and high school students as well as families and adults during the academic school year. Asked how to describe our program one participant said “It’s a weekend trip to a French speaking country… it’s an authentic immersion experience with a special cultural emphasis and theme.”

Le Festival Duvent

 

“V’LA LE BON VENT”

Le vent.  Les Voyageurs le chantaient à tu tête,  Calvi le célèbre chaque automne. Et cette année, Lac du Bois en parle à tort et à travers.  Tramontane, Mistral,  Harmattan que de noms qui invitent au voyage. Nous parlerons d’écologie contemporaine en jouant avec des moulins, nous ferons de la musique et chanterons des chansons dans le vent avec Bob Dylan, nous voguerons avec les navigateurs de renoms tel Florence Arthaud et Eric Loizeau et nous visiterons des ports francophones : Vung Tau, Ouessant ou Bizerte.

  Attachez vos tuques !!!!

                                                  On va bouger bouger!

 

“V’LA LE BON VENT”

Wind.  The Voyageurs sang about it from the  top of their lungs. The Corsican city of Calvi celebrates it every fall. And this year, Lac du Bois speaks of the winds left, right, and center. Tramontane, Mistral, Harmattan;  so many names that invite us on far away voyages.  We will talk of ecology while playing with windmills. We will make music and sing songs on the edge with Bob Dylan, sail with renowned sailors such as Florence Arthaud and Eric Loizeau, and we will rest in ports around the French speaking world like Vung Tau, Ouessant or Bizerte.

  Hold on to your tuques !!!!!!
