A stage pédagogique de courte durée or SPCD is a training grant aimed at helping teachers perfect their skills in methodologies for teaching French language and culture. The program will take place in Bordeaux for two weeks at the Alliance-Française training center. Cathy is looking forward to bringing the most current teaching methods back to her students and colleagues. Look for a full account and photos of her experience this fall!
