Global Conservation

In light of the recent problems the world is having with climate change, it’s more important than ever to watch how one’s own actions make an impact. With minor changes, one can reduce one’s “footprint,” or the quantified amount of emissions that one personally expends. One relatively easy adjustment to make is to walk more than one drives. In Paris, plans are being made to convert a stretch of highway into a park. While this will do wonders for the environment, this worries many Parisians who find that this pedestrian area will be inconvenience their daily commutes.  Others support this effort and will take advantage of the new space.

What Our Students Are Saying

“Planning a visit to Quebec province, I decided to attend a set of adult evening classes given by Nancy Scarselletta at a local high school. Her enthusiasm for, and knowledge of, the French language prompted me to sign up for further individual lessons. Over the last two years, I have come to appreciate Nancy’s vast experience –and infinite patience! — in teaching French with her unique emphasis on phonetics which she studied at the Sorbonne. In my opinion, French is not an easy language for English speakers given its unusual rules with multiple exceptions, potential liaisons, numerous irregular verbs, unfamiliar phonics, and plentiful idioms. I’ve appreciated Nancy’s approach and guidance throughout the course. And it’s been fun.”
