On October 3rd at Boston College, Tufts University and International School of Boston

This year’s celebration of the 50th anniversary of “May ‘68” gives us the opportunity to revisit a turning point in the history of France, particularly through in-depth analysis of Charles de Gaulle’s political choices. Our hope is to share General de Gaulle’s leadership example in order to inspire young generations of American students on the path to becoming future leaders in international careers.

Moreover, for aspiring international professionals, the French language now plays an increasingly important role in the professional areas of international relations and business. The second conference will also give universities the opportunity to learn more about Business French Diplomas created by the Paris Region Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCI).

Both conferences, led by Diane Grillère from Charles de Gaulle Foundation and Anaïs Ravet from French for Business of the Paris Region CCI, are free and open to everyone.

En tant que professeur, il vous arrive de vous demander comment utiliser la méthode du français par le théâtre dans vos cours. Même si vous détenez de nombreuses ressources suite à la formation « Le théâtre en classe de FLE », vous vous posez peut-être encore quelques questions.

Iris Munos a eu l’idée d’animer un blog dans lequel elle publiera de nombreux articles accompagnés de tutoriels, fiches pédagogiques et exercices à télécharger pour optimiser vos cours de FLE et ateliers de théâtre.
Le blog Théâtre FLE (site web 10 SUR 10) sera alimenté de pages pédagogiques sur la méthode d’apprentissage/enseignement du français par le théâtre.
