Toronto Universities’ French Contest
Concours de français des universités torontoises
The 2017 Toronto Universities’ French Contest will be held on Friday April 28th at the St. George Campus of the University of Toronto. The contest is open to non-francophone students currently enrolled in Grade 11 or Grade 12 French in a Toronto, Durham, Peel or York secondary school.
For more information, please visit the University of Toronto French department website (www.french.utoronto.ca)
or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The contest is open to students enrolled in a Toronto, Peel, Durham or York Region secondary school both during the year of the contest and the year preceding it. Students must be Canadian citizens or landed immigrants, and must have completed or be currently enrolled in Grade 11 or 12 French. Students will participate in one of four categories:
Grade 11 Core French
Grade 12 Core French
Grade 12 Core French plus
Grade 12 Extended/Immersion French
Each participating school may send a maximum of two students per category. Native French speakers and students enrolled in a French-language secondary school are not eligible. Students who have won a prize in a previous Toronto Universities' French Contest are not eligible. Students must fill out the application form and indicate the category which corresponds to the type of French program in which they are currently enrolled. Students who have switched from one type of program to another over the course of their primary and/or secondary studies should choose the category which they believe corresponds most closely to their background in French, and provide all relevant details on the application form. The organizing committee reserves the right to place students in the category that they deem the most appropriate, and to refuse students whose background in French does not correspond to any of the categories. Students must submit the completed form to their teacher. Teachers must then verify the information, and submit the completed application to the address indicated at the bottom of the form. Applications must be received by March 17th, 2017 to be considered.
This category is designed for non-francophone students who have followed the regular Core French curriculum in elementary and secondary school and who have not had any special opportunities to learn French (e.g. exchange programs, summer courses in French, etc).
Core French Plus
This category is designed for non-francophone students currently enrolled in a core program, but who were enrolled in an extended or immersion program in primary school, or who have had considerable exposure to French through exchange programs, summer courses, etc.
This contest is designed for non-francophone students who are currently enrolled in an Extended French or French Immersion program. Students currently enrolled in a core or extended program, but who were enrolled in an immersion program in primary school, or who have had considerable exposure to French through exchange programs, summer courses, etc., may also be placed in this category.
Considérant que rien de ce qui touche la langue française ne lui est étranger, la revue Arborescences se veut un espace de réflexion sur les enjeux actuels des études françaises aussi bien en littérature, en linguistique qu’en didactique.
