THE XIIIe Colloque pédagogique de l’Alliance française de São Paulo (AF-SP) (13th Instructional Symposium of the São Paulo French Alliance) was held recently in Brazil. The Québec Government Office in São Paulo (QGOSP) was one of the partners of this major event that brought together nearly 200 teachers from the French Alliance and other Brazilian French instruction networks.
In his speech, Mr. Hamann stressed the importance of cooperation with AF-SP to promote francization and culture. He also took advantage of the occasion to promote the very first Forum mondial de la langue française (World Forum for the French Language), which will be held in Québec City this coming July.
Numerous French instruction specialists attended the symposium. Québec was represented by Zita de Koninck, Professor, Faculté des lettres, Université Laval, and Josianne Basque, Professor, Unité d'enseignement et de recherche Éducation, TÉLUQ.
