Concours Impromptu 2017-07-17T09:10:57-04:00


Introducing Impromptu to Le Concours et festival d’art oratoire 2017

This year we are pleased to introduce the Impromptu Category to Le Concours et festival d’art oratoire, the largest French public-speaking event in Ontario. In recent years the paradigm shift in the teaching and learning of French has had an impact on the classroom. The professional discussions taking place across Ontario and nationwide about the action-oriented approach, spontaneous discussions and authentic tasks have been instrumental in the creation of this category.  This category promotes fluency and the ability to speak on the spot.
