On Wednesday, September 19, the La piqûre du français website was officially launched in the Dawson College board room.
With some forty colleagues, students and friends in attendance, the four authors – French Second Language (FSL) teachers Yung Truong and Catherine Duranleau from Vanier College, Christian Paré from Dawson College and Sophie Prince from John Abbott College – enthusiastically presented the history of the project, as well as the main functions of the website.
The site was developed on the initiative of Philippe Gagné, coordinator of the CEGEP FSL professors committee. It was financed by the Canada-Québec Agreement on Minority Language Education and Second Languages Instruction and produced by the CCDMD, with the particular help of project managers Véronica Gill and Michel Hardy-Vallée. The website offers allophone and anglophone students in health care techniques programs in the English-language CEGEP network pedagogical documents to help them prepare to offer care in French and pass the Office québécois de la langue française (OQLF) French exam.
The CCDMD would like to thank the Dawson communications service as well as the four authors for this successful launch!
