The AATF has produced six 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 By the Numbers,” “French is Not a “Foreign” Language,” “Ten Reasons to Learn French,” “Why Learn French?” and “Speaking French: An Investment in the Future” all focus on various features that make French a global language to learn in the 21st century.
“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, 302 N. Granite St., Marion, IL 62959-2346.
We have produced a number of promotional items with inscriptions or images in French, including bumper stickers, pens and pencils, buttons, notepads and notecards, a pencil pack (pen, pencil, ruler, eraser, sharpener), note card, as well as medals which can be used as awards. All these items are available in our Online Store.
