Calling all soccer fans!
The 2018 FIFA World Cup, or should we say, la coupe du monde de football, is here finalement !
Teaching the French language is an important mission here at the Alliance, but we also love to promote French culture. We look forward to watching les Bleus (France) play in the World Cup and want to celebrate cheering on our Francophone teams with you through a little friendly competition. We are giving you the chance to fill out a bracket for the chance to win a free French class!
All you have to do is open the attachment, fill out your bracket predictions, email it back at firstname.lastname@example.org by June 14 and …win! C’est facile!
*(Note that this contest is only open to students who are currently enrolled at the AFC and that this contest cannot be used in conjunction or on top of another promotional offer or discount. The awarded free class will be redeemable for the upcoming Summer session or the following Fall session only).
Rules of the game:
–Brackets must be sent back by Thursday June 14 at 9:00 a.m.
-Your name must clearly appear on the bracket
-One bracket per person
-No change can be made after your bracket as been sent
-Pick the two teams you think will top each group (A,B, C etc.)
-Following the guidelines on the bracket, place the winner your predict from one group against the runner up you predict from another group (careful: follow the pre-written groups at the top to make sure the teams you pick are in fact scheduled to meet). Then, pick the winner you predict will advance to the next stage
-For each team you picked correctly out of the group stage, you get 3 points
-For each team you picked correctly out of the group stage and in the correct order (i.e. France is qualified as the #2 of its group, and you predicted it to be #2), you get 4 points.
-For the final stages, each correctly-predicted victory is 3 points
-You get 5 points if you have predicted the exact number of goals scored for both teams (i.e. France 3 – Argentina 1)
*In case of a draw, the winner will be determined based on the total number of goals they predicted against the total number of goals actually scored during the final stages, and the person with the closest number will be the winner.
Bonne chance et allez les Bleus !
