Every year, the French Section offers its students the opportunity to participate in ambitious and interesting projects.
Radio Reflet is the web radio station for the French speaking students of TES. It aims to provide our students with a free, creative space to express themselves. It is also a place for learning about media, technology and communication. It allows our students to develop their command of the French language. Radio Reflet shares and connects French and Taiwanese culture in its programmes and reporting.
Every week, an ECA is organised and welcomes any French-speaking student in TES. During this ECA, students meet audio professionals, French-speaking actors, and well-known people in the arts, culture, and sciences.

Azimut Literary Prize
Azimut is organised in collaboration with other French schools in Asia. Our CM2 and 6ème students make up a literary jury, reading a shortlist of youth literature during the year, commenting on and analysing the works until they decide on an overall winner. The winner chosen by our students for 2015-2016 was Viola Violon by Rachel Hausfater. They invited the author to Taipei and had the chance to discuss the novel with her in person.
Nuit du c0de
In May 2016, the French Section hosted its first ever coding event, la Nuit du c0de, when our students from 3ème to 1ère, along with students from the High School and the French International School of Tokyo worked in teams to solve coding challenges using Scratch.
Let’s dare opera is a pilot pedagogical project initiated by AEFE that was launched in various countries in 2011, aiming to raise students’ awareness of Opera.
Turandot, by Giacomo Puccini, was adapted and interpreted by French Section pupils from 3ème and CM2. They prepared and rehearsed for 18 months, alongside professionals from the world of Opera.
