Description:

Keep your French fresh with our workshops!

Many of our members enjoy attending our workshops in order to maintain their language skills and socialize with other Francophiles. If you're already fairly fluent in French and prefer focusing on cultural topics and on the latest news rather than on linguistic aspects, our workshops are the best option for you!

If you have never attended classes at AFW, you need to contact us before signing up for a workshop series, so we can assess your level and find the ideal group for you. You also need to take our placement test. For all new AFW students, including complete beginners, an informal interview will be arranged before you attend your first workshop in order for our team to gain a better understanding of learning goals which are most important to you.

When are workshops taking place?

Workshops will start from September 2021 onward, and will finish no later than June 22nd, 2022. Our academic year is organized following 3 terms of 5 workshops each, starting in September, January and March or April, depending on groups.

When you sign up for this package, please note you're joining a specific group you will stay with during the whole academic year. This package is not an à-la-carte package. Once you've decided to join a specific group, you will not be able to switch to a different group.

Adults are grouped depending on their level, but also depending on their personal learning goals. Please also note that a maximum of 7 students can enroll in each group. Groups need a minimum of 4 students for the schedule to be confirmed.

Groups currently available:

  • White Plains - Wednesdays - 11.45am-1.15pm - « Atelier TV5 » - Intermediate Level (B1+ to B2) (contact us for exact schedule)

In this workshop series, our members will be practicing mostly their listening and speaking skills, by discussing topics covered by French media. TV5 will be the main source of videos used in this class, although your teacher may also use other sources, such as RFI, or other TV or radio programs broadcasted by media from any Francophone countries.

  • 100% Online - Wednesdays - 11.45am-1.15pm - « On en parle ! » - Advanced Level (B2+ to C2) (Starting on September 22nd -  schedule : 09/22, 10/06, 10/20, 11/03, 11/17)

In this workshop series, our members will be discussing a wide variety of topics, selected by the teacher or by students themselves. Each participant is expected to read articles and watch or listen to a variety of media before each discussion, as the workshops won't really focus on explaining contents covered, but mainly on sharing opinions, add extra information and discussing various perspectives.

  • 100% Online - Thursdays - 7pm-8.30pm - « On en parle ! » - Intermediate Level (B1+ to B2+) (Starting on September 16th - contact us for exact schedule)

In this workshop series, our members will be discussing a wide variety of topics, selected by the teacher or by students themselves. Each participant is expected to read articles and watch or listen to a variety of media before each discussion, as the workshops won't really focus on explaining contents covered, but mainly on sharing opinions, add extra information and discussing various perspectives.

  • 100% Online - Wednesdays - 7pm-8.30pm - « Portraits Francophones » - Intermediate Level (B1+ to B2+) (Starting on September 22nd - contact us for exact schedule)

In this workshop series, our members will be learning about a wide range of famous Francophones, past or present, selected by the teacher or by students themselves. Each participant is expected to read articles and watch or listen to a variety of media before each discussion. The workshops will focus on discussing the impact this specific Francophone has had on the world, and whether that impact should today be considered as a positive or negative one.

  • 100% Online - Wednesdays - 9am-10.30am - « Atelier Traduction » - Intermediate and Advanced Level (B1+ to C2) (Starting on September 29th - contact us for exact schedule)

In this workshop series, our members will be learning about a wide range of Francophone texts, past or present, selected by the teacher or by students themselves. Before live workshop sessions, each participant is expected to read French texts and propose an English translation of each text, based on their own interpretation of the essence of text. The live workshop sessions will focus on discussing the nuances between each version, so texts will have to be uploaded in our virtual classroom at least 24 hours before each live session in order to give other students the time to review translated versions submitted by their peers.

This annual discounted rate is valid for 15 workshops of 1 hour 30mn each and includes a one year access to our virtual classrooms for adults, in which you will find supplemental learning resources to help you reinforce your language skills between workshops.

This package does not include AFW membership fees, nor does it include the price of books or exercise books which may be included in some workshop series. A valid AFW membership is required for all AFW students. For more information, please check our membership page.

More workshops are due to be scheduled soon. If there are specific topics which you would like to see covered in our workshop series, feel free to contact us.
