The Department of French Language at Birzeit University, together with the Consulate General of France in Jerusalem, organized workshops for its faculty members on evaluation methods in teaching French as a foreign language at the university level. The workshops were held on Monday and Tuesday, April 16-17, 2018, at the department’s offices. 

Dr. David Bell, who has a Ph.D. in French language teaching and serves as an assistant professor at the University of Montreal, Canada and the University of Norman, South China, led these workshops. 

The workshops focused on evaluation methods for the four communication skills (comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing) in courses that deal with language, academic skills, and specialized topics such as literature and linguistics. The workshops facilitated expertise exchange between the faculty members and Professor Bell.
