More than 40 exhibitors in San Francisco
For the 1st edition of the Bilingual Education Fair in San Francisco, more than 40 companies and organizations will present their offers to parents and families.
Free childcare with activities for kids all day
While you’re visiting the fair, our on-site childcare can take care of your kids. They’ll have fun (in different languages!) with lively storytelling, sing-alongs, art and crafts, puppet making, puppet shows, and clown shows.
Hear stories of bilingual students
French Morning and Frenchly are calling on 7th-11th grade students for a San Francisco essay contest on being bilingual. Essays should be written in students’ best English. Essays will be judged on clarity, persuasiveness, originality, and how compelling the storytelling is.
Winners will be recognized at an awards ceremony at French Morning’s annual Bilingual Fair on February 3rd at Le Méridien.
