THE STORYMAKING WORKSHOPS (around 50 mins)
Using everyone's creativity and knowledge of French language or culture, Tania guides the pupils into writing stories that contain simple French sentences.
With the support of the teachers, these stories can then be developed and put into an appropriate and chosen format.

THE SUITCASE CONVERSATIONS (around 50 mins)
Tania is just back from Paris and has brought some really interesting things in her suitcase...

These workshops are a sensory introduction to the French language and culture, with a mix of objects, clothing accessories, pictures, all related to the French arts, monuments, fashion and every day life in general.

Their content is flexible and can be tailored to the school’s needs.
