Competition La Concours de la francophonie
This competition’s aim is to encourage all young French learners and their teachers around Scotland. Winners will be invited to celebrate “la journee mondiale de la francophonie” on 20th March 2017 in Edinburgh. To participate, schools need to submit a short video of maximum 5 minutes of a French performance. E.g. a short drama piece, a dialogue or a song. There are 4 categories: Pl-P4, P5-P7, Sl-S3 and S4-S6. At secondary level pupils are encouraged to create a performance not only a song. The submission dead line for the competition is the 17th December. Please send your video clip to Gwen McCrossan by this date. The winning entries from Argyll & Bute will then be sent to the Institut français to be entered into the national final. A national jury will select the best production in each category in January and results will be public at the end of January. The criteria to select the winners: The participation of ALL and the creativity of the piece The students should speak/sing clearly in French The end product is at the level of the students’ ability: not too easy and not too difficult. The winning teams will be invited to celebrate la journee mondiale de la francophonie in Edinburgh on 20th March 2017.The winning teams who are not able to travel that day will win a French immersion day in their school at a later date in the spring.
