La Mobilité Européenne au CFA les 13 Vents

The last week for the Danes
The week started out very delicously. We got to try our luck with the chocolaterie. The results were very good, almost as good as the very sweet class, who were very overbearing.

The last week for the Danes
Also a few disputes were settled on the basketball field. Soffi acted spectator, judge and mental support. As expected, Denmark beated America.

The last week for the Danes
Last of all - we would like to thank you all for a couple of fantastic weeks. It has been a very interesting time here at CFA, and we want to wish you all the best of luck.
Held og lykke

Denmark - out.

Another Adventurous Week
This week, we were so lucky to visit the bakers in the boulangerie. 
Here we under kind instructions from the teacher, made our very own batch of croissants 
We have therefore now been officially baptised into french culture. 

Another Adventurous Week
Once again this week we got to try out the restaurant.
And we had a delicious meal with a very kind waiter, who we also caught in the picture.
Who we had a nice conversation with while we enjoyed the beautiful view of Tulle.

Another Adventurous Week
Yesterday, we lost our ways into the gym where we borrowed some eqiupment.
This turned in to a very good and exciting match.
Soffi, who were a beginner are now a trained badmintonplayer, and are ready to meet any challenger.
Kom glad.

 Wonderful, wonderous week
The week started fantastically, with a haircut for Soffi by Camille.
She was really sweet and did a good job.
We had a lovely talk about Tulle and she even recommended a few nice places down in the city.
Now being in the end of the week: Soffi is still very satisfied with hear new haircut

 Wonderful, wonderous week
This week we also had the chance to try out the restaurant.
We the waiters in training did a really good job - and we hope they got to practice their English. 

 Wonderful, wonderous week
Last and definitely not least, we had the awesome experience of having 1B cuisine for a lesson of English.
We hope you had fun and learned a thing or two - we know we did.

Hello from Ireland
My name is Lis-Anne and I come from Dublin, Ireland. Everybody knows Ireland for its Guinness,
Baileys and Whiskey, but that is not all we are famous for! Ireland is famous for its rugby
(recently we won the Six Nations), its friendly people, our culture and beautiful scenery!
I am really looking forward to improving my French and exploring the countryside around Tulle!

Hey y'all!
My name is Ariel, I am a pastry cook, and I come from Nashville, Tennessee USA! In America we are known for having many diverse cultures, music, movies, and a lot of fried food especially in the south where I am from! I love to bake, sing, and have coffee with friends both new and old. I have come to France in search of new experiences, language practice, meeting new people, and to eat lots of good pastry. I cannot wait to learn from the students and teachers here and hoping you learn from me as well!

Our Boulangerie class!

This week we had the amazing opportunity to attend a Boulangerie class - learning the art of viennoiserie in France is a dream come true for any keen baker! Under careful instruction from both students and the teacher, we managed to make some delicious pain au chocolat by the end of the day.

Le restaurant


Did we mention the wonderful views from the Restaurant?

One of our "jobs" this week was to eat at  the school restaurant, as the waiters-in-training need someone to practice on! Best. Job. Ever. The food and service was great, so our waiter was obviously doing well at the class!

We had our first pâtisserie lesson, where the students were preparing for a cake decorating exam! We also did some practice, and made cake decorations under the themes of 'Vacances de la mer' (beach holiday), 'Toulouse, cité de l'espace' (Toulouse, city of space) and 'La carnaval de Rio' (Rio carnival).

Of course, as we're on workaway, we needed to work and not just have fun in pâtisserie class all day! We helped Ouided the english teacher with several classes. It was great seeing the students trying to guess where we were from - we were impressed with how many students recognised the Haka and the All Blacks!

On the weekend we went out exploring Corrèze with Favio and Barbara. We visited many small villages, and stopped to have a tour around a local farm. At the farm they made the Corrèze specialty, vin paillé (straw wine), so of course we had to sample some!

Incredible experience!
Incredible experience!
The atmosphere in the school is super positive and the language exchange is really helpful and nice for me.  Tulle has not dissappointed either, a picturesque change from the big cities. Both the weather and the people here have been smiling at me ever since I arrived - again super big thumbs up to CFA!

Bonjour à tous !
Je suis Barbara and I will be staying at the school for the next 3 weeks, attending English classes to share experiences and encourage students to speak English. Je ne parle pas français, mais je vais bientôt . I already attended one of the patisserie classes and finally learned how to make macarons. Can’t wait to the next class, I already know .

I will be sad to leave the school...

Teaching English
This week Eugenio and I will cover the lesson's of the English teacher; as she is on a seminary in Cardiff.
What an exciting opportunity to teach the students some English. Today we spent the morning with the cooks and waiters in the IT Room. It was quite easy going as they worked most of the time on their own.

Les Profs
This week Leá and I will be the teachers. 100 percent of the English students will be interesting, they will learn from us and we will learn from them, the first classes were calm and without worries, and I know that this will continue like this.

Cuisine et Boulangerie


Jours de Pratique
Ces jours-ci j'étais dans les laboratoires de cuisine et de boulangerie apprendre à faire des pains différents et de nouveaux plats que je ne sais pas faire, en plus de ne pas savoir la langue française le rend un peu plus compliqué, mais j'ai pu apprendre beaucoup de saveurs uniques.

En boulangerie j'ai appris à faire des croissants, ce qui est très compliqué et nous avons aussi fait différents types de pains comme Baguette, c'était très intéressant d'être ce jour-là à la boulangerie.

Dans la cuisine tout a l'air différent, j'appartiens à cet endroit, ils faisaient tous ce qu'on leur disait et devaient être dans le temps et la forme, c'était une expérience inoubliable.
