"Teaching with radio" training sessions

Radio offers teachers a mine of authentic sound documents to use in the French classroom. That is why we run courses for teachers called “Teaching with RFI”. Whether your purpose is to learn about the media or to work on oral comprehension of spoken French, we can help you improve your understanding of radio and the way it uses language to incorporate in your learning / teaching.

Learn and teach with RFI

“Learn and teach with radio” is what the RFI French language service offers you through its awareness workshops and customized teacher training sessions.

Awareness workshops
These workshops last 1½ to 4 hours to increase listening awareness of RFI’s authentic sounds. Teachers of French as a foreign language will find fun ideas and practical tools for teaching with the resources available on RFI’s French language website.

Teacher training
Training workshops last from 6 to 30 hours and give you the keys to get your pupils to understand and use French in the media.

Two types of course are possible:
- Workshop with a focus on using radio audio extracts for teaching (creation of activities using authentic sounds for French lessons).
- Workshop with a focus on radio production in the classroom, using the Audacity software programme (production of a radio portrait, show, sound bite, report).
Either of these workshops can be completed by the module “Making the most of productions” in the RFI Savoirs community.

→ The two workshops can be combined starting from 12 hours of training.
