This month we are featuring artists whose performances and workshops can support FSL learning beyond the classroom. Whether it’s improvisational theatre, mime, West African song and dance, or folk music, bringing a bilingual or French performance into your school can enable students to build communication skills and connect with the language in meaningful ways. Scroll down to view all French and Bilingual performances.
