Alliance Française

2022 French Spelling Bee

The benefits of spelling bees extend beyond language. Since children are required to spell words while on stage, kids develop self-confidence, communication and public speaking skills, and the ability to thrive under pressure. For those reasons, your Alliance and its partner have acknowledged the importance of Spelling in French..

Your Alliance is proud to introduce this contest that your students are simply challenged to spell in French!

Categories: Open to all French learners. Students are divided into two categories by their grade. Only $5
