Espace Francophone

This site from the French Consulate in New Orleans contains an extensive collection of audiovisual materials for the French language classroom at a variety of levels of instruction. It is also for the independent Francophile who wishes to learn more about the Francophone world. A fine collection on Louisiana and French language immersion.

This site was so fun! There is a lot going on on the home page, but that makes it all the more exciting to drop by to see the latest news. I really enjoyed getting to see a little of the French culture with this site.

The site is a bit busy to me, but I think it is a fun site for anyone wishing to learn more about the French language and culture. Showing it in a classroom setting is fine, but be aware that the Humor section has some questionable contents for young viewers.

Technical Remarks:

Most sites were working, but some links led to a site that is now non-existent.

Time spent reviewing site: 30 minutes

For French teachers and instructors who wish a real immersion into French Language and francophone Culture, this link is a wonderful resources for them and their students. The links to TV5 and to some radio stations will expose students and instructors to a wealth of information on politics, culture, sciences,geography and much more. There is even a possibility for independent learners to assess their knowledge of French language and literature through self- assessment tests on the TV5 website. I am currently creating an online course on "Francophonie: Language, Texts and Culture" for Morgan State University and I will definetely use this site.

I had a lot of fun browsing this site. There is a seemingly endless wealth of
information right at your fingertips. I especially liked that it not only
provided french links, but also French/American links (like New Orleans).

Technical Remarks:

I found the site very easy to navigate, I highly reccommend this for a classroom
