Concours Impromptu Division2019-04-12T16:57:13-04:00

Impromptu Division of Le Concours et festival d’art oratoire 2019

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 division in 2017.  This division promotes fluency and the ability to speak on the spot.
