Classes Duo Paris / Knoxville

Classes Duo is an international program of extracurricular exchanges for elementary schools set up by the Paris City Council. These exchanges are implemented via digital tools and the Internet.

The objective of this program is to arouse the curiosity of young children about foreign cultures and give them the desire to discover other countries, interact with the children who live there, and learn foreign languages.

Exchanges between the two schools are done by email, videoconferences, or through a blog powered by content (videos, photos, texts …) produced by children. The use of images, videos, and drawings can bypass the language barrier when it exists. The educational project and the tools are defined beforehand by the two educational teams.

Bilingual speakers animate these exchanges, which can complement language courses that take place during school hours.
