2019 Spring Class
Conversation in French
Instructor: Sylvie Charron
Thursdays • 3/21-5/9 • 10:15 AM-12:15 PM
Location: Jewett 185
Come to converse in French and brush up on your French, even if you have not spoken in years. We will discuss a variety of cultural topics such as lyrics of popular songs, environment, immigration, family, food, education, tourism, etc., based on your interests. We will use authentic cultural materials (music, film clips, articles, short excerpts, and web resources) to start our discussions. We will share food cultures, and possibly have one whole-day field trip to Lac Mégantic for the last class if there is interest. Passports would be needed to go to Canada. Materials will be provided.
Class size 6-18 students
