Dis-Moi Dix Mots 2022-2023 EDITION
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.
Every year, The French language and Francophonie Week takes place around March 20, International Francophonie Day. Several events are planned in France and abroad, to show our attachment to the French language by celebrating its richness and diversity.
The French Cultural Services in Miami / Villa Albertine and the Alliance Française Miami Metro launch, across the schools of Florida and Puerto Rico (either with a French bilingual Program or offering French classes taught as a foreign language) the 2022-2023 edition of the “Dis-moi dix mots” contest.
Each year, a theme intended to convey a message about the French language and ten words illustrating it are chosen by the various French speaking partners of the OPALE network: France, Belgium, Quebec, Switzerland and the International Organization of the Francophonie (representing 84 states and governments).
The purpose of the contest is to invite the students to play and express themselves and give free rein to their creativity with ten words in either a literary or artistic form: ten words to write, recite, sing, draw, photograph or film...!
