Bonjour tout le monde. j'ai eu la chance à faire un discours à mon classe sur le sujet du voyage de Jeunes Ambassadeurs, et voila un vidéo de mon discours pour vous.
If reading through blog posts isn't your thing, then here is a video of my Young Ambassadors Tour speech that I was able to use for my English internal that give a day-to-day account of what we did on the trip back in July.
