French & Francophone Film & Conversation Course

This course will be a relaxed opportunity to improve your conversational French through weekly online synchronous meetings. We will watch one easily available film from the Francophone world before our weekly discussions. In order to be able to discuss the films in French, participants will be given relevant vocabulary and grammatical structures as well as an article that contextualizes each film. We will work collaboratively as an online French & Francophone film “club,” meeting synchronously for one hour every Thursday at 7 p.m. from July 9th to August 13th. This course will be offered for six weeks - a.k.a six films! We welcome members of the larger FA community whose French may be very rusty as well as those who consider themselves advanced speakers. All are welcome! This course will be taught by Dr. Polly Duke (with occasional guest visits by members of the FA WLC Department and beyond).
