Last week some students from Rosa Parks have had this great opportunity to watch a documentary film called I learn America in the presence of Jean Michel Dissard ,the film director.Here are some of their reactions :
« The debate after the projection of the film was very instructive.I was amazed by the stories of these students coming from all over the world .. » Youenn
» Actually, I was really impressed by these four teenagers expériences …One of them has walked across the desert to find his mum, another learnt different languages and one wants to go to College and worked really hard.. » Clémentine
« I thought this experience was really interesting.I could understand when the students explained how they had to adapt to another country..They were creating their own way to survive the new life .And I thought how Lucky we are in France with so many possibilities to go to school.. » Toinon
