Join us for an opportunity to improve your French with other adults. This course is suited to beginner and intermediate students who want to be more comfortable using French, and have a better grasp on the basic rules of the language.
Each week uses a thematic approach in order to cover a range of important topics. The first half of each class is concept based, including learning vocabulary, grammar, and structure. The second half of each class is practice and oral activities, so you can put into place that night’s lesson.
Activities will be designed for students who are beginners or intermediate. Each week’s activities will have different targets for learners from each category.
Classes are 90 minutes each, and the course is eight weeks in duration.

Concours d’art oratoire is Canada’s largest annual French-language public-speaking competition involving over a 100,000 students across Canada every year, and thousands of dollars worth of prizes.

The aims of this public speaking contest are to stimulate the interest of students learning French, to improve their oral skills, and to give them experience speaking in public.

This event is organized by Canadian Parents for French (CPF), who has worked together with parents and school staff since 1983 to organize school, district and provincial-level competitions.

Concours d'art oratoire is open to French Second Language (FSL) and Francophone students from grades five through twelve who are studying Core French, Integrated French, Intensive French, French immersion (Early or Late) or French First Language (CSAP), or studying in at a CAIS school (Canadian Association of Independent Schools).
