Parlons Français Boot Camp
Presented by: Michelle De Abreu

Session Location:
Peace Library System 8301 110 Street, Grande Prairie, AB GET DIRECTIONS
About the Session:

Are you a teacher of French whose oral language skills could use a workout? Perhaps your French is ‘out of shape’ or your confidence level could use a boost to match the level of French you teach. Maybe you are not a teacher at all and just want to dust off your high school French to put it to good use. 
Whatever the reason, exercise your oral French skills in a fun, low-stress, collegial atmosphere where all participants can strengthen their language proficiency. The only prerequisites are that you’ve had some French instruction in the past and are willing to take risks and laugh at your inevitable mistakes!
Expect to spend the day hearing and speaking French, digging through the cobwebs of your brain to retrieve and use long forgotten French lessons from your past. The linguistic workout will leave you exhausted in the best possible way, motivated and more confident in your oral French abilities. Post camp, you will be able to adapt and use all oral activities with your students of any age, language level or French program.
This session will be delivered in French.
