Timbers' player visits exchange students at Oregon Episcopal School
Students from Martinique have been visiting Oregon Episcopal School through a French language exchange program, and on Tuesday, Timbers player Frédéric Piquionne, who also is from the Caribbean island, stopped in to chat with his countrymen and their OES hosts.
If students asked questions in French, Piquionne responded in French, and if they asked things in English, he responded in English, so all the students had to use their second language to understand everything he said.
While in Portland, the students from Martinique visited Multnomah Falls, played in the snow on Mount Hood and attended a Timbers game in addition to attending classes at OES. Later this spring, the students from OES will travel to Martinique for a French-immersion experience.Add a comment
