Discover the winners of the contest "Let’s sing in French" 2017 [fr]
In order to celebrate French language the students have sung in French and also realized a short video clip for their songs.
The theme was the one of the project Dis-moi dix mots 2017 : « Dis-moi dix mots sur la toile » that show how French language adapts to new technologies and digital use without needing to take words from other languages.
Most of the given words came from the physical world : avatar, canular, émoticône, favori, fureteur, héberger, nomade, nuage, pirate, télésnober.
