An English Forum at the Mairie du 7ème

An English Forum at the Mairie du 7ème

The mairie du 7ème,  one of the most attractive arrondissements of Paris, is tapping into its huge English speaking community to organize a family-friendly event to promote itself to its foreign residents and above all, to promote the use of the English Language in the district.

Home to many of the major tourist attractions of Paris, such as the Eiffel Tower and the Hôtel des Invalides (Napoléon's resting place), and a concentration of such world-famous museums as the Musée d'Orsay, Musée Rodin, and the Musée du quai Branly (among others), the Mairie du 7ème has seen the rise of English Language over the years.


This year’s English Forum is focusing on a special awareness campaign for Children. Being a necessity in this age, the practice of the English language in our daily lives must be promoted in different ways. That’s what Rachida Dati (Mayor of the 7th) and her entire team at the Mairie du 7ème have been working on.

The 2016’s English Forum in the 7ème arrondissement will take place on the 18th May 2016 from 1 to 7pm at the Mairie on 116 rue de Grenelle, 7eme Paris.

An interesting number of cultural activities for kids is being organized. These include music workshops like Sing-and-Play Surprise for 5-10 year-olds, a quiz on English culture, with loads of prizes.

The Institut de l’Alma will sing English songs at around 15h, and the American Church in Paris is going to give a concert from 18h- 19h.

Stop by and practice your franglais! You can as well send an email or just call to reserve a seat or take a part in different workshops via: ou This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
