About National French Week

National French Week 2024: November 6-12, 2024
Theme: Le français -- langue globale

The AATF is pleased to announce its organization of the twenty-second annual National French Week. This week-long celebration of all things French will take place in schools, communities, and AATF chapters across the U.S. from November 6-12, 2024. We ask members and any other interested Francophones and Francophiles to take French out of the classroom and demonstrate all the reasons to learn French. Join us in celebrating the French language and francophone culture!


We have identified major themes for each day of National French Week, and we encourage teachers to celebrate as many of them as possible.

We encourage you to consult the index of the National Bulletin for Small Grant Reports and témoignages regarding successful National French Week activities.


The AATF offers two contests to help celebrate National French Week: the National Francophone Culture Trivia Contest and the National French Week Media Contest. For more information about each contest, please click on its logo below.
