"The "Culture of the Francophonie" course is an innovative course. It makes students want to do research on the topic of their choice, which they are very interested in, so it makes them learn about studies in the creative and interesting way."
"Personally, it is an exceptional experience to learn by designing a sequence for SLFF. I thought a lot about finding a good topic, a good angle and to design interesting educational activities for the children and all this requires a lot of research of information. It is during this research that I watched a lot of videos, news and that I have a closer look on the island of Mayotte. In my opinion, this course allows us not only to know the generality of "francophonie", but also to choose a point that interests us the most and have an autonomous and deep learning experience on it."
"Among the courses I have taken, the CultureS de la Francophonie course is undoubtedly the most innovative and modern. From a didactic point of view, it was a continuous discovery. Learning, studying, not just from books or notes, but by watching videos, doing individual research, building my own project, helped me grow and put my knowledge and skills into practice."
"I consider the work on the pedagogical sheets very innovative and stimulating. First of all, it allowed people who would like to teach French abroad to think about the problems related to language exercises and different teaching techniques. (Through games for example) Moreover, the possibility to see our cards on the website of the Francophonie week and to make them accessible to French teachers gave us the impression to work on something very useful. It definitely made the work more exciting."
"It was a very interesting and unusual teaching experience. Indeed, I have never participated in this kind of course. Then, this pedagogical innovation gave me the opportunity to discover the Polynesian culture that I was not familiar with. I was able to express my creativity during the preparation of the exercises for the young students from an idea that developed over the weeks. In addition, I had the pleasure of working in pairs which allowed me to develop different ways of approaching the topic. The presentation in front of an audience was also very rich in the exchange of points of view."
"From the beginning, I realized that this course was constructed in a special way. Instead of learning the material in the traditional way, with a lot of dates and historical events that are difficult to remember, the course was set up in an interactive way. For the certificate work, we were allowed to choose an interesting topic and based on it, we had to provide a didactic work that was likely to participate in the cantonal competition in Bern. This not only gave us an extraordinary motivation, but also forced us to master the subject well in order to be able to pass on our knowledge to the recipients of the pedagogical dossier. I recognize that the volume of work was considerable, however I am very happy that I participated and that my teaching dossier "Colors of the Francophonie in the painting of Haiti" was selected for the competition in Bern."
