FRENCH IMMERSION ACTIVITIES IN THE ATCHAFALAYA NATIONAL HERITAGE AREA

- Do you wish you had more fun opportunities to speak French?
- Do you want to meet other francophones?
- Do you not have enough time or money to attend a full-length immersion program out of the state or country?
- Do you love exploring Louisiana?

The Atchafalaya National Heritage Area is organizing short French immersion activities great for adults, college students, teens and kids who want to speak French outside the classroom. These experiences are easy ways to practice your language skills, meet other francophones and explore unique parts of Louisiana.

SATURDAY, JAN. 16
Join us for D’UN BORD A L’AUTRE: Chansons traditionnelles de France et Louisiane, a French song workshop led by a native French speaker. We’ll learn traditional songs from France, their meanings and variations that ended up across the Atlantic Ocean in Louisiana. We’ll even sing a little as a group (no musical talent required)! This event is free and open to all ages (kids 12 and younger must have a guardian present). Those who would like to continue speaking in French after the workshop are welcome to join us for lunch (location TBA).

FRENCH LEVEL
All levels are welcome. The one rule is that participants speak only in French for the duration of the immersion activity. Native and advanced speakers will enjoy meeting other francophones and learning about the cultural ties between Louisiana and France through music. Beginners will learn new vocabulary and expand their knowledge. All participants who RSVP in advance will receive a vocabulary sheet with words that may come in handy throughout the workshop.

WHEN: Saturday, Jan. 16, from 10 a.m. to noon
WHERE: Assumption Parish Library, 2800 La. Hwy. 70, Pierre Part, LA 70339
PRICE: Free
AGE: All ages are welcome, but kids 12 and younger must have a guardian present.
REGISTRATION: Space is limited, so advance registration is encouraged.
