Les Timbrés de l’Orthographe

Who will be "timbré" enough to win ?!

L’AF de Manchester is organising, in collaboration with les Éditions de l’Opportun Sarl, a Alliance française network competition: Les Timbrés de l’orthographe!

The purpose of this competition is to promote the proper use of the French language and to offer a fun opportunity to everyone test their knowledge!

Les Timbrés de l’orthographe will take place on Saturday 19 March 2016 at the AF de Manchester, from 1:30 to 3pm!

Anybody over 8 can participate!
Competitors are separated in three categories depending on their age :

  • "Cadets" : competitors born between 2003 and 2007
  • "Juniors" : competitors born between 1998 and 2002
  • "Adults" : competitors born in 1997 or before

The competitors will have a choice between competing at « Beginner » or at « Advanced » level. They will be asked to write a dictation and to answer a multiple choice quiz.
It is nice to know that the dictation of the advanced level has been written by Luc Ferry, sponsor of the competition!

  • A dinner for 2 persons at Cote Brasserie will be offered to the first place of the Alliance of Manchester!
  • Surprise prizes will be distributed by our Alliance of Manchester to the 2nd and 3rd places in each category!
  • A Special Price will be offered to the winner of the advanced level during the Grand Final, which will take place Saturday 11 June.
