French 1 students celebrated their own ceremonie de mariage. After discussing the vocabulary for family and the traditions involved in a typical civil ceremony in France, students role played their own ceremony. We had our very own groom and bride. Students listened to the articles of the civil code of mariage which would be read at any civil ceremony in France. Students had a great time complete with champagne (sparkling cider) and cupcakes. They came away from the role play with a greater understanding of wedding traditions in France. Attached you will find photos of the event.
