French 206: Upper-Intermediate Conversation

Prof. Davis-Medevielle
What kind of music would a French student have on his iPod? How does the French health care system work? What does socialism mean to the French? How do religion and politics connect in France? The primary goal of this discussion-oriented class will be to attempt to answer these and other questions about contemporary French culture.

A reader, up to date articles, music, videos and a film, along with student presentations, will encourage conversations about modern day France as we attempt to break-down stereotypes and discover what it means to be French today.

This course, which will meet M-R from 10.10-11.50am during the first summer semester, will be conducted entirely in French. Pre-requisite: French 202 or the equivalent.
