This workshop will focus on updating pedagogy and using authentic resources to develop engaging classroom activities. The workshop will be delivered by experienced Alliance Française teachers, who will work to ensure that participants with a range of French language competence can meaningfully engage with the workshops.
The Carnet de vacances is a great opportunity not only to update and invigorate pedagogy, but also to maintain your language skills in an immersion environment.
