LSF Montpellier celebrates the international day of French teachers and offers them a wide range of teaching solutions.

Today, Thursday 26th of November 2020, is the international French Teachers’ Day! Our profession is being honoured, so first of all we would like to congratulate all the French teachers, who passionately transmit their love for our beautiful language! Teaching French is a vast and exciting field and we are well placed to know it! Our core business has to adapt a little more every year to the challenges of our world! In a few lines, we hereby explain to you the objectives of this day and our commitment to quality training!

What is the international French Teachers’ Day?

Every year, teachers of French from all over the world gather around this event organised by the FIPF (Fédération Internationale des Professeurs de Français). The goal of this day is to create cohesion and solidarity through the sharing of experiences, all in a friendly and benevolent atmosphere. JOurnée internationale des professeurs de français

This day is therefore an opportunity to take part in numerous activities such as conferences, training courses, all around a common theme. This year’s programme is based on the following topic: NEW LINKS AND NEW PRACTICES: PROJECTS FOR TOMORROW. A theme that questions current pedagogical practices and invites teachers to reflect on the following issues:

What are the new forms of teaching French? What new tools are emerging? What new relationships are being forged between students and teachers? How can we reinvent ourselves pedagogically outside of the classroom? How to adapt to the different possibilities of the digital environment? What professional practices will remain?
