More from Angers

The morning began with a visit to Château d’Angers (see http://monuments-nationaux.fr/en/actualites/a-la-une/bdd/actu/1541 for more info), an incredible medieval castle that contains one of the largest tapestries in the world (and the oldest in France). A-MA-ZING! 

Then I went to the Centre international d’étude de la langue française (CIDEF), located at the Université catholique de l’Ouest, which is also where AHA is located. I met with Sue and two nice women, both named Florence, about study abroad opportunities. There are many, even if students don’t speak French! I am excited to take back ideas to Concordia to see if we can get some students over here.

I also visited the Anglophone library in Angers, where Sue volunteers. I was able to have a few more surveys completed for my research. I can tell that English is highly valued here, especially with a high unemployment rate – it can really help young adults secure a decent job. Next Sue and I got coffee before she left for her Italian class. It was a very enjoyable – and productive – day. (I wanted to include many more photos but was unsuccessful and gave up…my apologies!)
