Thinking of where to go during spring break?
Are you on a tight budget?
Want to learn a romantic language but can’t afford Europe?
Why not consider Canada?
It’s the home of ice hockey, Celine Dion and Canadian beer.
It’s cheaper than Paris and you can still brush up on your French.
This breathtaking excursion being offered to Temple students through the French Club includes five days and four nights, from March 12-March 16, 2003, visiting Montreal and Quebec in Canada.
Students will travel by deluxe motor coach and stay in an exclusive hotel where they will meet other students and locals of the city.
Looking for something that will offer you more than just fun?
Well, you can also increase your knowledge of the country and its language by taking bilingual tours in the cities, visiting art museums and experiencing first hand their wonderful history.
Students will also have the chance to explore the city on their own, either going late night shopping, clubbing or to the movies to watch French films.
Though eighteen is the legal drinking age in Quebec, students are urged to drink responsibly to enjoy what the city has to offer.
This trip to Canada presents students with an exceptional offer for spring break in 2003.
Limited space is available for students interested in this exciting, inexpensive journey, which will cost you less than five hundred dollars.
Food, transportation, hotels, tours and activities are all included in the price.
This is an expedition for everyone who might be interested in Canada and the French language.
You can plan to go with your roommates, friends and even boyfriends or girlfriends who are Temple students.
Quebec has a lot to offer to students who are looking for something more than just a typical spring break event.
Close enough to the United States; it has the largest French-speaking population in North America.
French is the official language of the province, which contributes to their dynamic characters and distinct identities.
Quebec has many renowned ski resorts located near major urban centers and high quality cuisines.
Alla Gerzon, junior and president of the French Club, organized the trip “to allow students to experience the language and culture.”
Temple students need “a change of scenery” said Gerzon.
She started the French club in March this year.
She had inquired about other French organizations that had been inactive and when she got no results she decided to start the club.
The club is open to any student that is interested in the French language.
“You do not have to be a French major to be in the club,” said Alla.
The members of the French club meet every other Monday in Tuttleman Learning Center room 202 to converse in French while watching French films.
The club, which continuously accepts new members, is currently looking for officers for the spring semester.
They are also about to establish a community service program, tutoring French to Temple students.
