Budding Ambassadors 2021

Budding Ambassadors 2021

Budding Ambassadors is a program that was created in 2012 by the AEFE for Primary and Secondary School students. It promotes the skills taught all throughout the AEFE network related to learning several languages simultaneously, oral expression, comprehension and the resulting intercultural openness. Budding Ambassadors began as a debate contest, but now includes a diverse range of oral language practices. Speeches on current foreign affairs and issues are carried out in French and in the language(s) of the host country (English for LCS). They are usually accompanied by summaries in English. For the 2021 edition, the theme "Citizens: for Equality and Solidarity" was proposed. This builds on the recent French Schools Abroad Week which highlighted the humanist values that represent the foundation of the French education system.

 

The tournament, which can include various forms of public speaking, is organised during the school year at school, country and zone level, before a major meeting between Budding Ambassadors finalists in Paris in May. This contest highlights the values promoted by the AEFE and strengthens the MONDE-AEFE network of students and alumni. The 2021 edition has been adapted in order to take into account the global pandemic but the spirit of "Budding Ambassadors" remains. Good luck to all our students!
