Hamel's had told him the shocking news that this would be there last lesson and they were only to learn German in school after today. Franz was very happy to hear this news M. Hamel's on the other hand seemed very upset. Finally the lesson began M. Hamel's taught them everything he could, everyone listened to his orders and appreciated there last chance to learn everything possible.
