Open interactive french writing tutorial created by Aline Baehler and tested with students at New York University. The program is free of cost and open to anyone, but users have to register first. It offers two writing workshops (Artisan, intermediate advanced level and Pénélope, advanced level), and a total of approximately 80 hours of activities on line.  The program is designed for college students and individual language learners who want to improve their French writing skills outside of the classroom setting, but numerous activities are also great to use in class. Examples of student work are posted on the third section of the program, Mille pattes.
