French Professional Development Summer Institute

A Workshop for Experienced and New French DLI Teachers

In response to the need for qualified French DLI teachers, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and the FACE Foundation are partnering with the University of Utah’s L2 TReC to develop the first French DLI Professional Development Summer Institute.

The Institute will provide teachers with training in curriculum development, classroom management and use of resources specific to French DLI, as well as the opportunity to network and work closely with professionals in the field.

Unfortunately, the COVID 19 pandemic will not allow us to have the French DLI Professional Development Summer Institute we were planning on organizing this summer at Georgia State University in Atlanta. We are sorry we will not have this fruitful meeting with you this year but we will be sure to provide resources, ideas and advice for you.
