The month of December is already here; it is exciting to see the streets and malls decorated with ornements and Christmas lights.

Students are certainly getting more into the Christmas spirit; this week they will be singing Christmas songs in French and they will be learning about "Noël" by having the respective vocabulary and grammar level according to their grades.
