Passeport pour la Francophonie is a new website by the Scottish government aimed at young children who are learning French, and their teachers. Here are some excerpts from the government’s press release:
“Passeport pour la Francophonie will support primary teachers to provide stimulating and exciting learning experiences at second level, developing skills for reading, writing, listening and talking. The website provides suggestions for exploring the other curriculum areas such as religious and moral education or maths and numeracy through the medium of French language and culture.
“Learners will find that the activities bring languages to life by traveling through five different countries of the Francophonie. They will discover other cultures, meet children from around the world and gain an understanding and appreciation of their native language and culture.”
The website is available at http://www.educationscotland.gov.uk/passeportfrancophone/index.asp
