Created in 2013 by Abdulah Bouddour, “La Dictée pour Tout le Monde” (The Dictation for Everyone) is an educational initiative that encourages young people and adults to come together. This year, a major event will take place in Paris…
Sixty-two percent of French citizens express concern about the decline in spelling proficiency.
Therefore, to address this situation, what method could be more effective than a thorough review through dictation exercises?
Initially designed to energize French neighborhoods, the initiative has expanded to be planned throughout the entire country.
The goal is to remember the disadvantaged neighborhoods, whether on the outskirts or in the regions.
The last weekend was marked by a dictation session in Strasbourg, at the renowned Place Kléber.
Journalist and presenter Julien Nigaud Muller read the dictation to the three hundred people present at the event.
It is an excellent system for checking spelling proficiency, but also a way to broaden public access to reading and writing.
In fact, in 2017, the organization set a new world record for the largest dictation in Drancy, with the participation of one thousand two hundred thirty-four people.
Perhaps they will establish even more records this year with the upcoming grand final stage in the heart of the capital.
Meanwhile, other dictation events are being announced throughout the country, which can be found on the organization’s website.
