Language through Popular Culture I
0.5 Credit

This course explores the French language as it is spoken, written and sung in many different Francophone environments. Students will discover the riches of Francophone cultures through novel excerpts, songs, authentic videos, French movies and the World Wide Web. There is also an intensive and in-depth grammar review. In order to apply the grammatical concepts being studied and to develop their writing skills, students write collaboratively 'fairy tales' which will be given to a local school for reading and illustrating.
