Intermediate French Conversation Through Cinema  

Did you once study French? Would you like to improve your ability to understand and speak it now? In this course we will have the opportunity to watch French films with English subtitles and to discuss the films and their cultural contexts in French. The course will emphasize communication and having fun while learning. “Intermediate French Conversation” has become a cooperative learning situation. People come from a variety of backgrounds and a variety of experiences using French. Their spoken French ranges from people with two years of French to others who used it for communication in elementary or high school classes. Students encourage others to listen and to learn from each other. Small-group activities will help encourage everyone to speak, however haltingly. We will also discuss current events and recent travel or cultural experiences, depending on the people in the class. We will also try to visit one of the French pastry shops or restaurants in the area. The first part of the class will be a discussion session, and we will not start showing a film until 10:30, so that people can arrive late if the traffic is difficult.
