Everyone is invited to take their pen, in front of their screen, to participate in this writing exercise!

This dictée is organized as part of the Festival de la Francophonie in Washington, DC and will take place on March 7th at 6:00 p.m. EST on Zoom. Sarah Diligenti, Executive Director of AFDC, will read an excerpt from a text by a Francophone author, which will be announced later.

The event is free and open to everyone! However, we recommend a B2+ level of French. All registrants will receive a Zoom link a few days before the event.


Parviendrez-vous à réaliser un sans faute ? Tout le monde est invité à prendre son stylo, devant son écran pour participer à cet exercice collectif.

Cette dictée est organisée dans le cadre du Festival de la Francophonie à Washington et aura lieu le 7 mars à 18h00 EST sur Zoom. Sarah Diligenti, le directeur exécutif de l'AFDC, lira un extrait du texte francophone qui sera annoncé plus tard.

L'événement est gratuit et ouvert à tous ! Nous recommandons cependant un niveau de français B2+. Tous les inscrits recevront un lien de connexion quelques jours avant l'événement.
