On 4th October, 2014, we, the students of Dubai Gem Private School, embarked on a thrilling journey to Le Centre Mediterraneen D’etudes Francais or CMEF, located in Cap D’ail in Nice for a week long educational programme. CMEF is an international summer programme, for students from 13 to 17 years.

At 9:10am, our aircraft took off from The Dubai International Airport, with 41 Dubai Gem students and 5 dedicated teachers. No sooner, were we blazing through the clear skies of France when we landed, hale and hearty, at The Nice International Airport. There began the best week of our lives.

Our mornings commenced at 7:45am in the campus cafeteria, where we rushed to guzzle down a bowl of delicious French hot chocolate and a pot of fresh cornflakes. Subsequently, we dashed off to our entertaining French lessons, where we were segregated into 3 batches (A1, A2 and B1) according to our respective levels in French. The classes were fun filled, enjoyable and most of all, highly educative. After 4 hours of intense learning, with a half an hour break in between, we scurried to the cafeteria, for a scrumptious French meal.

Next, we began our excursions, under the leadership of Tolgahan and Astrid, our friendly, talented and confident coaches. Every day, we visited a different town and encountered different people. Altogether, we travelled to Nice, Monte Carlo and Monaco, probably the three most beautiful cities I have ever visited.

After sunset, we had several different kinds of activities, ranging from football tournaments to folk dancing, crepe and waffle making. We got the opportunity to interact with two other groups, the Italians and another Dubai based school. Personally, the best part of my trip, was that I gained friendship with 40 other amazing students from my very own school. We, the students, and our fantastic teachers along with the entire team of CMEF, felt like a little French family ! We look forward to yet another exciting and adventurous trip next year.
