Everyone dreams of going to Paris! Challenge your advanced French speakers to really get to know the city of lights. They use the plethora of worksheets provided to really explore the monuments, museums, and shops of Paris. They use a comparison chart to record prices for various activities and they decide which places they'd visit. They research flights, hotels, etc. A fun twist would be to assign each person a different budget.
