Bienvenue au site officiel de 

manie musicale !  

Manie Musicale is an annual bracket-style competition for students and teachers of French.  Similar to March Madness basketball in the United States, participants try to predict which of 16 francophone songs will be the most popular.  Once the tournament starts, voters decide which song will advance to the next round until we have a champion.  The best part?  Students learn French while having fun with students from all over the world. 

Use the navigation bar above or the buttons below to access help, voting, and resources.

Are you a teacher new to Manie?  Please start with the, "How it all works page".  Please also join our Facebook group for incredible collaboration and fantastic resources.

Un gros merci à Señor Ashby d'avoir été une source d'inspiration!

Note:  Always search first, ask another teacher, or check with your tech folks before contacting the help desk.  The "How it all works" page will have answers to most of your questions.  Please do NOT email the help desk asking for results.  We are busy volunteers usually also teaching a full course load.  Merci!
