Patricio from Mexico fell in love with the Canadian winter! Enrolled in Grade 8 at the Arc-en-ciel School in Oromocto, he participated in the the New Brunswick French International Student Program during the 2015-2016 school year.
Although he only knew a few words in French when he arrived at the beginning of the school year, thanks to his efforts and support from his teacher, his host family and his new friends, he learned by leaps and bounds.
