AFTV Concours Lycéens: a successful speaking competition for Year 11 and 12 students
This event was created in 2016 by the AFTV with the clear objectives
Set up into two stages, the Concours Lycéens invites schools to enrol students to perform a 3-4 minute informal conversation (Year 11 division) and a role-play (Year 12 division) in front of experienced French teachers and in front of other students from other schools. The best candidates are then selected as finalists and are invited to perform during the Bastille Day Festival which was launched by the French Consulate in Melbourne in 2015.
This second stage of the competition is very exciting as students perform on stage in front of a large audience of Francophones and Francophiles visiting the Bastille day Festival, held at the State Library in 2015/ 2016 and the Meat Market in 2017.
The winners receive prizes from our generous sponsors and certificates. The French Honorary Consule of Melbourne attends this event to congratulate our winners.
