Let yhou be told! in partnership with the Livre qui conte publishing house
Development of an edutainment project dedicated to storytelling for classes and institutions teaching French abroad.
An original approach centred on the art of traditional folk tales that provides a fun and cultural way of implementing the various skills of linguistic comprehension and expression in French as a foreign language, adaptable to all levels of the CEFR.
1/ Discovery of the traditional oral and written intangible heritage of the corpus of fairy tales from France and other French-speaking countries, possibly interpolated with stories from the host country;
2/ Oral and/or written comprehension based on a traditional tale or modern story (film, novel, etc.);
3/ Identification of the stages of the narrative and actancial schemes;
4/ Highlighting the elements of the combinatorial matrix (places, objects, characters, actions);
5/ Collective creation in class of the outline of a new tale;
6/ Fine work on oral and/or written expression;
7/ writing and telling individual stories
8/ Public presentation with a jury in the form of an eloquence competition.
