GUIDED TOUR -
This year we worked a lot about Australia, from different points of view : historical, architectural, cultural, etc. We were extremely lucky as one of my trainee teachers had a friend in Australia who sent us a video about his home city, Melbourne.
Being optimistic, as teachers sometimes are, I asked my students to choose a place or a monument, they liked in Reims and to sum up information about it, explaining why they liked it. Of course I dreamt we would be able to make a video to answer Matt. But of course we had too many things to do before, and we never achieved this. Yet I don't want my students to have worked for nothing that's why I'm publishing here the texts they produced, as long as these texts are accurate.
Laure, Charlotte and Aïda. Lycée Chagall: "We like its vending machines for food, coffee, especially nut coffee. We're free, so we enjoy ourselves. We're proud to be in this high school where we get great marks. There are European classes, International classes, Design classes and Drama classes. And to finish, there is a "Drawing Wall" where students can express themselves.
Jade, Marie-Amélie and Léna. "The Boulingrin was restored recently. It's a (covered) market every weekend. There are many different restaurants around the market where friends, families can meet to spend a good time together. Particularly there's a restaurant called "The Clos" which is really famous, original and cosy. It's the meeting place of Reims's inhabitants.
Hugo, Axel and Paulin. Reims's Stadium is the only official football (soccer) stadium in our city. The place was restored in 2009. There are 21,000 seats for supporters, but there aren't so many people attending every match. This stadiums welcomes only football games.
Imane, Philippine S. and Clara. The Opera of Reims, well-known till recently as "Le Grand Théâtre", was built in 1873 by Alphonse Gosset. Unfortunately it was destroyed by WWI in 1914 but was rebuilt in 1931. As for the aesthetics, the front of this building is really beautiful with a neo-classic style. Moreover it can welcome 790 people. There are different kinds of shows such as ballet, opera, magic, street dance... It's a lovely place to visit with your family or your friends.
Clotilde, Morgan and Justine. The Porte Mars is a famous gate in Reims. It's situated near to the town centre. It was built during the Roman Era to glorify the God of War, Mars. That's why you can see his face at each end of the three arches which compose the gate. During Antiquity it was used to protect the city from enemies' attacks. It is being restored.
Marianne. Food Avenue is an original place where you can eat lots of different kinds of food. There are five restaurants in one.You can traditional American fast food. There is also a healthy restaurant where you can compose your own salad by putting many vegetables in it, but also meat, eggs or fish. So in my opinion it's a very good place to eat something with your family or your friends.
Laëtitia and Manon. Rue de Vesle (Vesle Street), this street is like the heart of the city because there are many shops. It's very easy to access by bus or on foot, so, if you want to do some shopping, it's the right place to go !
Unsigned: The Cartonnerie is a really good concert hall which attracts a lot of famous bands such as Machine Head or Amon Amarth. The hall is really comfortable, spacious ; it's cheap and the staff is very friendly. You will really enjoy the music, the artists and the time you spend there.
