Le Thé des étudiants

MLK F.A.M.E Community Center

By invitation

The Alliance Française de Seattle looks forward to hosting the traditional "Thé des étudiants" (students' tea), an award ceremony recognizing the merit and perseverance of high school students in their study of French. 

Following the tradition of the Cercle français, active in Seattle from 1918 to 1987, when it then became the Alliance Française local chapter, we are delighted to honor high school students’ merit and perseverance in studying the French language as well as their teachers in their exceptional work of promoting it. With over 300 million speakers all over the world, the French language opens doors not only in numerous European countries, but also in Canada and 24 countries in Africa. There are more than 50 million French language learners worldwide, which represents an increase of 10% in the last four years. 

Le Thé des étudiants a pour objectif de féliciter les meilleurs élèves de français langue étrangère dans la région de Greater Seattle. Destiné à encourager vos élèves dans leur volonté d’étudier la langue française, cet événement sera l’occasion de rendre honneur à leur mérite et persévérance avec la remise d’un diplôme et d’un prix. Cette cérémonie a aussi pour but de mettre en valeur le travail des professeurs de français, ainsi que d’illustrer l’utilité de la connaissance d’une langue étrangère au-delà du cadre académique.
