LET’S DISCOVER A FEW OF THE MOST ICONIC FRENCH COMEDIES!!!
Did you know that French is nicknamed the “Language of Moliere?” Did you know that Moliere is the greatest French comic of all times? In this case, why not study French language – and its rules… through comedy?
Through 6 French comedies (from the sixties to 2000), we will explore French grammar rules and link them to each film. Each class will be based off one film excerpt. From there we will discuss a new grammar rule, verb rule, and spelling rule.
The goal of this class is to develop confidence in your writing and speaking abilities. It will focus on the vocabulary of cinema and cinematographic analysis. We will also work on mastering French grammar and tenses.
