About Us

On the occasion of National French Week (November, 1-8), the Embassy of France in the United States, in association with the American Association of Teachers of French and the Québec Government Office in Los Angeles, presents its third edition of the Dictée des Francophones, a celebration of the Francophonie for all French learners in North America.

As French as the Eiffel Tower”, it is said that dictation is one of the most famous and popular school exercises in the French-speaking world.

This year and as the Paris 2024 Olympic Games are approaching, the event will celebrate the diversity of the French language throughout the French-speaking world by putting sports in the spotlight!

Roseline Filion, double medallist at the London (2012) and Rio (2016) Olympic Games in diving, will lend her voice to the texts. Now a sports columnist, the Canadian champion will also cover the next Olympic Games in Paris!

The dictation texts will be accompanied by educational sheets for teachers and students, to help prepare for the exercise and highlight the different French lexicons.

Registrations are open!
After selecting appropriate level(s), the material (texts, recordings, educational sheets) will be sent out on October, 27. If your registration follows this date, you will receive the material at the end of the week corresponding to your registration.
