Description

To gain as much confidence as possible in idiomatic French, we discuss French social institutions and culture, trying to appreciate differences between French and American viewpoints. Our conversational exchanges will touch upon such topics as French education, art and architecture, the status of women, the spectrum of political parties, minority groups, religion, and the position of France and French-speaking countries in the world. Supplementary work with audio and video materials.

Requisite: French 05, or completion of AP French, or four years of secondary school French in a strong program. Limited to 16 students. Spring semester.  Professors Caplan and Katsaros.

If Overenrolled: Seniors will have the lowest priority and will be dropped first. Priority will be given to: first- and second-year students, especially those who are planning to study in France, and to French majors and potential majors.
