France-Atlanta 2017 - education series

August 22, 2017 | By FRENCH CULTURE ATLANTA

Representatives from local NGOs will share their field experience with students in Metro Atlanta high schools and universities from November 1 - November 24.

With new technologies and more easily accessibility for traveling, learning a second language is more prevalent than ever. Many high schools require at least one year of a foreign language, yet most students don't realize just how beneficial a second language can be for their future.

International organizations and Non-Government Agencies (NGOs) rely heavily on employees who speak French. With over 220 million French speakers worldwide on the 5 continents, French has the status of an official language in 32 different countries and governments, and is ranked the sixth most widely spoken language.

Representatives from local NGOs will share their field experience with students in Metro Atlanta high schools and universities from November 1 - November 24. Students will be able to learn more about current humanitarian issues that are being addressed by these organizations and discover new ways to use the French language in a professional setting. 

WHEN : November 1 - November 24

WHERE : Participating schools in Metro Atlanta
