  • Familiarize students with the practical aspects of planning a trip on the TGV from Paris to another city in France
  • Students will have to choose as their destination a city currently served by the TGV. They can easily make their selection from the map of the TGV system, which provides the information visually.
  • Students have learned, if they have read the Lecture supplémentaire in Chapter 9, that trains leave from different stations in Paris depending on what direction they are going in. As is the case in real life, selecting the correct Paris train station from which to board your train is impossible unless you know what part of France the city you've chosen is in. The activity in this way reinforces practical knowledge of Paris as well as French geography.
