Summary:

What could possibly be better for your students than learning a new language but also a new culture with authentic French materials such as newspaper articles, pictures, videos, etc.? Nowadays, everything seems to be accessible through the Internet, but it could also be the tricky part: where should I look to find good teaching materials, and how could I use these documents to teach French? This workshop will try to answer both questions.
