Estepona City Council and the French Alliance of Malaga inform that during this year they will continue to promote the teaching of the Gallic language in the city through courses, workshops and cultural activities.
The deputy mayor of the Sociocultural area, Begoña Ortiz, explained that the cultural entity will continue to offer face-to-face classes at the Padre Manuel Cultural Center, although there is also the option of receiving classes online through the use of a platform where the syllabus will be taught with the dynamics usual.
The municipal official has valued the six years of collaboration between both institutions, since it has allowed more than 500 adult students, adolescents and children to acquire knowledge in the Gallic language.
The course will begin on October 3 and end on February 3 for adults, and in June for children (4 to 11 years old) and adolescents (11 to 16 years old). The adult courses will offer two classes per week and the children’s and junior courses will have one session per week. Classes last one hour and thirty minutes.
In addition, everyone who signs up for face-to-face courses before September 7 and for online courses from September 5 to 12 will enjoy a discount of 50 euros on the price.
On the other hand, from the French Alliance in Malaga it is reported that, for the third consecutive year, classes will continue to be taught at the IES Mediterráneo to prepare the students of this educational center for the official exams.
Likewise, from November to February they will offer specialized courses such as preparation workshops for the official DELF and DALF exams, which focus on the methodology of the exam and allow the four required skills to be practiced with tests and drills.
For this, there is a DELF/DALF examining teacher, certified by the French Ministry of Education, and the students will have the opportunity to take the exam in Estepona. These diplomas are internationally recognized and make it possible to assess the skills in French, both academically and professionally, of all those non-Francophones who want official recognition of their level of French.
Finally, Francophone culture will continue to be celebrated in Estepona, with the monthly screening of films in French starting in October at the Padre Manuel Cultural Center, with free admission.
