Professional Development Workshops
for Teachers of French

Workshops that help current and future French teachers improve their French instruction to toddlers, kids, teens, and adults!

Each workshop is led by certified native-speaking educators and renowned specialists in didactics and pedagogy. They are affordable and offer teachers the opportunity to learn classroom strategies, share experiences, and develop pedagogical skills that are easily incorporated into existing lesson plans. Using state-of-the-art equipment, participants may experiment with alternative teaching methods that enhance their current programs and speak to their technology-forward students.

"Le fait d'être à l'Alliance avec d'autres professeurs de FLE a été un grand plaisir. Depuis 5 ans à NY, c'est la première fois que j'ai l'occasion d'une rencontre comme celle-ci. Merci !"
— Jose Eduardo Vasconcellos Guimaraes
