Semaine de la Francophonie

"La semaine de la langue française et de la francophonie" takes place from the 12 to the 20 of March 2016. This week celebrates the French language all over the world and we are proud to participate.

We have many things planned for this week at the Alliance :

  • Book fair : Come enjoy our free French books during all week, or bring your own to trade
  • Discovering new words: we will guide you through the "dis-moi dix mots" project from the French Educational Minister and help you discover French words from all over the world. The diversity of the French language is represented by words from Québec, Switzerland, Belgium, Haiti, Congo, and of course France !
  • Activities on comic books : A few weeks ago, the Alliance française de Manchester organized a week encouraging us to learn more about French comic books, or BDs.
    In order to continue with this theme, teachers will be organising comic book themed activities in class, such as filling in the speech bubbles of your very own comic strip. Anyone interested can participate as more strips are also available to fill in in our Library !
    The best ones will be presented in the Alliance, and you could win prizes !
  • "Les timbrés de l’orthographe": the spelling contest will take place on 19 March, 1:30-3:00pm.
