Objectives

Designed for students at the B1 level and above, this 6-week virtual course will focus on the works of internationally acclaimed artists who happen to be from Belgium.  Students will discover, explore, and discuss the oeuvre of singers and songwriters, authors, painters, and architects, notably Jacques Brel, Stromae, Axelle Red, Georges Simenon (detective novelist, author of the Maigret), Amélie Nothomb, Hergé (known for The Adventures of Tintin), Magritte, Delvaux, Horta (founder of the Art Nouveau movement), among others. 

The class will be divided into three segments: the first two weeks will be devoted to singers and songwriters, the following two weeks to authors and the most popular European cartoonist, and the last two weeks to art and architecture.   Students will be invited to give presentations on a specific artist, work of art, or movement.

Finally, class will be conducted entirely in French.

Please note: THERE WILL BE NO CLASSES DURING THE WEEK OF THANKSGIVING

WHAT OUR MEMBERS ARE SAYING

Stephen G.

"Alliance Française de Denver created a wonderful virtual environment where I spent my Summer vacation; visiting the winemaking area of Bouzy; celebrating Bastille Day; learning how to cook with flowers; touring historic châteaux and beautiful villages; all in the safety and comfort of my home. A real treat for any Francophone person; especially having a daily place for French chat to try out and maintain colloquial skills."

“Anne is fantastic! The material is fast paced for this ‘old dog’ to learn new tricks, but we couldn’t go slower. It’s been very helpful to prepare me for my trip to France.”

“A great place to learn and practice French while getting acquainted with French culture and interesting people. I definitely recommend AFD and their events. Je parle français! Et vous?”
