Are you ready for the Olympic and Paralympic Games to be held in Paris from July 26 to August 11, 2024 and from August 28 to September 8, 2024?
 The most important thing is to take part!

Organized by The French Cultural Services in Miami / Villa Albertine and the Alliance Française Miami Metro 

Supported by the Consulate General of France in Miami, and the Consulate General of Canada in Miami.

The French Cultural Services in Miami / Villa Albertine and the Alliance Française Miami Metro launch, across the schools of Florida (either with a French bilingual Program or offering French classes taught as a foreign language)
the 2024 edition of the“Dis-moi dix mots” contest.

"Dis-moi dix mots" is a pretext for promoting language in all its forms. The idea is you to take hold of the ten words and showcase your talents to propose  a writing or an illustrated writing.

These ten words, which illustrate a different theme every year, are chosen by French-speaking partners: Belgium, France, Quebec, Switzerland and the International Organization of La Francophonie (which brings together 88 states and governments worldwide).

2024 Edition : « Dis-moi dix mots sur le podium! »

“Tell me 10 words on the podium!"(literally) … 

The new edition invites you to dive into the world of sport and Olympism. Sport is not only essential to good health, it also instills the values of respect and and self-improvement. Sport is also about determination, acceptance of rules and the need for a break. Let's not forget that is also about pleasure and sharing!
