Outils innovants pour enseigner
To meet the demand and create a modern French education both fun and alive, the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs promotes the creation and dissemination of innovative tools, such as multimedia (Internet website, CD-Rom, online courses, numeric methods……) or audio-visual (cassettes and DVD of news reports, French-speaking clips and songs.)
The French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs has set up a website with the firm << Le meilleur du cinéma français>> which provides the French cultural network around the world with a collection of movies easy to download and to show on the basics of non-commercial screening. This is complementary to the collection of classical 25mm films available on DVD and provided by the Bureau du Film of the French Ministry. A hundred of full-length films, among the most remarkable independent productions in the last few years, are available on the website with English and Spanish subtitles.
