About the Session:


Would you like to have the opportunity to practice your French language skills in a low-risk environment with like-minded colleagues? La Jasette is a perfect opportunity for you! With the three-fold goal of developing oral French proficiency, teachers also network with colleagues who work in second-language setting and engage in interactive language tasks that can be adapted to their classrooms.
