French Immersion Retreat


The 10th Annual French Immersion Weekend Retreat, sponsored by The Ohio Chapter of the American Association of Teachers of French (AATF), for current and future French teachers, took place on September 20-22, 2013 at Mohican State Park and attracted a record number of participants—over 30—from all over the state.  The UA was represented by a team of five members:  Drs. Susan Colville-Hall and Maria Adamowicz-Hariasz; our graduate Teaching Assistant, Nils Dafniet; Licensure/Master degree candidate Abbey Jones; and an undergraduate French major, Evan Faidley.  Speaking French, networking and sharing ideas, hiking and playing “pétanque,” eating, singing by the fire and laughing—what a great occasion to meet old and new francophiles!
