TheCanadian Association for French Language Education (ACELF) will hold its very first pan-Canadian virtual event "ACELF Live: My Well-Being, Our Well-Being!" ". This festive event, which will take place on October 23, 2020, at 11:45 a.m. (EDT), aims to bring together members of the staff of French-language schools in the country to exchange, share and be inspired by innovative practices allowing to help young people to live their Francophonie.
ACELF live will be co-hosted by Franco-Manitoban Jean Fontaine and a committed young Franco-Manitoban, whose identity will soon be revealed, who will discuss in interviews how to nurture students' sense of pride for the Francophonie in these unprecedented times.
What concrete tips can we use to help young people maintain the French language? The conference of Professor Chantal Mayer-Crittenden, a speech therapist passionate about oral expression, will answer it. Several surprises also await those who register for this free event.
The ACELF invites members of the staff of French-language schools to discover the programming of this virtual meeting and to register for it by visiting the site: endirect.acelf.ca.
At all times, the ACELF offers a host of free resources to equip educators in order to help young people define themselves through the Francophonie. The Educational activity bank (BAP), the resources of Travel in Canadian Francophonie and the successful practices, reflections and testimonies disseminated via Francosphere are some examples of the tools offered.
