This month, as I am sure you are all aware is le mois de la francophonie, where we, as French teachers, have the opportunity to share our love of all things French and Francophone. This year the country of choice is LA TUNISIE !
As you will know, if you follow my work, this is one area of language teaching (cultural capital) that really excites me and I believe, after 23 years’ in the job, also massively motivates learners. We are all inquisitive by nature and are often driven to find out more about those around us and those who do not live so close by; their similarities as much as their differences.
Below you will find a list of websites where you could find out more about Tunisia, the focus country for this year’s celebrations.
Quiz de la francophonie (20-25 March so still time to sign up!
There are a few general links to where to find out about Tunisia as well as a link to how you can get involved in, for example the Institut Français mois de la francophonie quiz!
In addition, to these links, you may also be interesed to hear that I have written (with the help of some lovely friends) another Les aventures de Polly Glot dans le monde francophone story…this time, set in Tunisia. I usually charge 5 UK pounds for these books as they can take days, even weeks to research and write. I have decided to offer Polly va en Tunisie as a pay as you feel, with a minimum suggested donation of 2.50. I hope you think this is fair and I hope it encourages many of you to grab the book at a bargain price and also spread the love of this wonderful francophone country amongst your learners.
This link above will take you to a simple 30 question match up quiz that I have made and wanted to share with you all – this will also give you a taster of the contents of the book!
If you are interested in the Polly va en Tunisie 30 page e-book, you can paypal me 2.50 (or the donation of your choice) to https://paypal.me/subew and if you add your email in a message within paypal where it says ‘What are you paying for’, I will send you the e-book direct by Friday of this week or no more than 24 hours after you have paid.
If you do not have paypal and would rather make a bank transfer, please drop me an email with the email title ‘Tunisie’ and I will get back to you asap. Any issues in making a payment or sharing details via paypal just drop me a message to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you do purchase the book, I would love to hear what you and your learners think via an email to email@example.com or a tweet to @suzibewell
Merci and happy mois de la francophonie !
