Alors on chante !

Apprenez le français en chantant

The Institut Français and the Centre national de la musique have teamed up to create and promote the ‘Alors on chante!’ programme, aimed at the French cultural network abroad.

The ‘Alors on chante!’ programme contains suggestions for raising awareness of Francophone music through the network, as well as teaching materials to support the use of music in francophone teaching abroad.
