This month we’re taking you to Paris for a one-hour auditory journey! Our librarian will take you through an immersive audio tour around ones of the most hidden gems of the French capital, enriched by iconic tunes celebrating the city’s beauty.

For the occasion, The French Library will be bathed in subdued lights and furnished with carpets, bean bags, comfy chairs and blankets.
A unique occasion to dream, maybe sleep, and to get fully energized again after your day!

Escape Games applied in a learning situation allow students to develop their communication skills to achieve a specific goal; it also allows teachers to introduce playfulness in class, motivate students and establish team-building.

Trainees will experience for themselves two Escape Game scenarios, in French, that can be reused in their classes.

As always the workshop is free but places are limited, so book quickly!

This seminar is organized to mark the tercentenary of the rescue of Polish Princess Maria Clementina Sobieska from captivity in Innsbruck in April 1719 by a small group of Irish people and one French woman in a most dramatic fashion. The rescue itself will be retold on April 30th and complemented by other perspectives offered by 6 world-class historians from Poland, Ireland and France.
This fine example of Franco-Irish-Polish cooperation is generously sponsored by The Embassy of the Republic of Polish Embassy, the French Embassy, Alliance Française Dublin; Rathmines College and the Technological University of Dublin.
