The AATF has promotional flyers targeting a variety of audiences. They can be posted on bulletin boards, distributed at parent-teacher conferences or open houses, shared with administrators and school board members, and used to convince others of the continued importance of learning French.
“French is Not a “Foreign” Language” is currently offered with additional flyers coming soon.
“Help Wanted: Encourage Students to Learn French”
Developed by the Commission on High Schools, this flyer targets school guidance counselors. It outlines how studying French can provide important career advantages for students. AATF members may receive a limited number of “Help Wanted: Encourage Students to Learn French” flyers for distribution to guidance counselors (or to request sample copies) by sending a self-addressed stamped envelope with one or two first-class postage stamps to AATF Help Wanted Flyer, 7333 W Jefferson Ave, Suite 240, Lakewood, CO 80235-2017.
