About Ambassadeurs En Herbe
Created in 2012 by the AEFE, Ambassadeurs en Herbe promotes skills linked to the simultaneous learning of several languages. How to convince through oral expression, how to gain trust by understanding of and openness to intercultural experiences.
For the 2020-2021 school year, the 9th edition of Ambassadeurs En Herbe follows an essentially digital format in order to take into account the current situation arising from the global health crisis.
Students are invited to question themselves around the theme “Citizens: equal and united” reflecting this health crisis, and on a broader scale, international news in all fields (political, economic, environmental, etc.).
The contest operates in a tournament-mode. From early stages to the final, students are selected by a jury of students and teachers. This year, the North America Zone final will be hosted by the Lycee Francais of San Francisco.
