Fine-Tune Your French Through Film
Improve your knowledge of French by watching contemporary French language films and TV series and then engaging in lively discussions about the stories, actors, settings, and language. This immersive course examines how French is actually spoken—from formal French to colorful slang. Acquire a better knowledge of idiomatic expressions and grammar structures while honing your listening skills. Each week, you will watch an assigned film on your own schedule, and then class discussions will explore the cultural, linguistic, and sociopolitical issues raised. Optional short writing assignments ensure comprehension and individualized feedback. Participation in this course does require at least intermediate French language proficiency.
Note: Course content changes every semester, so this course may be taken more than once. Registering at least two weeks prior to the course start date is highly recommended.
