The Francophone Project
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

The Francophone Project is a resource that was created in order to bring awareness to the various French speaking countries throughout the world. Because culture is so important and often pushed aside in the classroom, we created a website for educators and learners of the French language to use as a way to access information about culture through natives. The website includes individuals from France to Canada, Algeria, The Ivory Coast and more. Through short videos, these individuals share certain aspects about their cultures while reflecting what it means to be Francophone to them. Our hope is that our project will serve to help people learn the French language, to appreciate all Francophone cultures, and to continue learning because it’s benefits go far beyond borders.

World Language Student Video Project Assignment Ideas
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

Rating

"This project was created to conjoin my two areas of study–a foreign language and media production. What inspired this project was my experience seeing other students struggle with the technological aspect of video editing, while also not enjoying the assignment overall. My aim was to address both of these issues to create fun, easy video project ideas for teachers to implement into the classroom."
