Martiniquan students visit SVG to learn English


St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) has once again hosted Martiniquan students, through the collaboration of the Alliance Française SVG and the F.O.L (Fédération des Ouvres Laïques).{{more}}

This year, F.O.L, in association with the Alliance Française, sent 12 students, along with two chaperones, to SVG to learn English and experience some of the culture and history of the islands. The students lived with Vincentian families for two fun-filled and educational weeks, and they attended English classes at the Alliance Française, visited several historical and natural sites which included Fort Charlotte, the Botanical Garden, the Vermont Nature trail and Fort Duvernette, Bequia and Dark View Falls. They also took part in some Carnival activities.

“Having these students here has been a great experience as it always is, and we have been able to learn as much from them as they have learned from us. To continue this camaraderie between St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Martinique, the Alliance Française hopes to organize student exchanges, where Vincentian students can visit Martinique in turn and experience some of what the country has to offer, while living with Martiniquan families.

“We, at the Alliance Française, look forward to meeting more young people from Martinique and we wish to thank our partners and all the host families who took part of this experience and considered these students like their own children for two weeks,” a release from the Alliance Francaise said.
