About this project

After teaching French immersion cooking classes for many years, including this year in Burlington, Vermont, I have realized how powerful those hands-on activities are to teach French to young and old. My workshops in Burlington have helped beginners get a grasp on the language and be comfortable navigating in French; they've helped intermediate learners boost their confidence and increase tremendously their vocabulary; and they've helped advanced learners expand all their language skills in a real-life environment.

The problem is that I'm not always there for people. So I have decided to create a French immersion cookbook, specifically designed with 10 recipes to teach people an amazing amount of French in an intense DIY immersive experience. With all my tips and explanations on how to use the book, people will be able to replicate the French immersion cooking experience on their own, and recipes will be illustrated and written in a professionally thought-out way to cater to French learners and maximize language acquisition.

Parents who want their kids to learn French will also find this book useful, and so will French teachers who would like to organize French immersion cooking workshops at their school. There will be guiding tips for all these audiences included in the book.

The funds I am raising for this project will go towards all self-publishing costs, therefore mostly printing the book. People who donate above certain amount will receive an electronic or paper-copy of the book (depending on amount of donation).

Risks and challenges

The foreword and closing of the book (both essential parts to make the most out of it, pedagogically) are all ready. The recipes have been chosen but writing and illustrating them is still in the making.

I would like to publish the book by December 2017, and hopefully much before.

There should not be much risk associating with this project, as I am in the process of writing the book and will get this completed in the coming months.
