Tuesday, November 9, 2021.
The 2021 edition of Halifax’s French for the Future forum will be held completely virtually on November 9th, 2021. We are expecting more than 300 students in the 7th and 8th grades from across Nova Scotia.
During this day of activities completely in French, students will be able to attend a virtual performance of a francophone artist, a guest speaker, in addition to participating in stimulating and interactive virtual workshops. These workshops will also allow them to discuss with professionals working in French in various fields, who will share the importance of being able to communicate in French.
Through these fun activities, participants will bond with young people from the other linguistic community and will be able to discover an overview of the Francophone and Acadian culture of Nova Scotia.
This memorable day will demonstrate to students that French is not just a school subject, but is also a vibrant culture that offers plenty of possibilities. This one-of-a-kind day is an event not to be missed. Register now!
