Having passed through the various spaces of the site and seen many works, the team must find the answer to a final riddle to complete its mission. Once the visit is finished and the mission accomplished, the children and their chaperones have earned their lunch. Mealtime is always a time of conversation and discussion with friends as the children enjoy a picnic lunch provided by their parents.
After lunch, the children have a choice between outdoor games (weather permitting) and other reading or calmer games. This game time concludes the cultural program. The visit in small groups aims to open up interaction and discussion, while the booklet provides the vocabulary and a pretext to ask questions.
It also helps to remain focused on the main theme of the visit, which is the assigned mission. Lunchtime and playtime give more time for informal conversations and social interaction as it takes place in daily life. The variety of these contexts is essential to taking ownership of the language and to the emergence of a French awareness and identity. Linking pleasure with the French language used at all times during these outings strengthens the connection to the language and the child’s personal motivation to learn French.
