- from level B2 -
In this Workshop, the students will analyse a Literary Work (novel, short story, poetry, play). The text will be given to the students during the first week of the course in order for them to read it before the start of the Workshop (Monday of the second week).
The teacher will give the historical and social background of the work and will help the students to understand not only the literal meaning of the work but also the psychological implications and the style of writing. In this way the students will be able to approach the beauty of a text in a foreign language. They will also be asked to write their own thoughts or feelings in a literary fashion. In this way they will learn the language from a different perspective than in everyday life situations.
Introduction to Literature Workshop
- from level B1 -
This workshop is for the intermediate students who may not yet have the required level to read a whole Literary Work. Instead, they will readand analyse excerpts of texts which will be taken from Literary Works (novel, short story, poetry, play). The Workshop will be more than a text analysis, it will teach the students to feel the emotions literary texts can convey in a foreign language. They will also be asked to work on expressing thoughts or emotions in writing in French. In this way the students will learn the language from a different perspective than in everyday life situations.
