Event Details

Salut!

This autumn, we're offering a fun and innovative new advanced French class in which students will watch and discuss four French-language movies. The movies will be a mix of classic and contemporary French films (and will be different from the ones discussed in the summer session).

Watching original-language movies is a great way to learn colloquial French and to build your comprehension and speaking. Every week, we'll discuss the plots and the cultural context, and the instructor (Maurice, from Paris) will align the week's discussion with the review of grammar, vocabulary and idiomatic expressions.

Is this class for you?

This course is intended for people who are already familiar with the basics of French grammar and are fairly conversant in the present, simple past, and simple future tenses.

Students should be able to speak and understand at a fairly good level, even if they aren't perfectly fluent and make some mistakes, as the class will be conducted entirely in French.

About this class

This course is 10 weeks long and meets for 60 minutes per weekly session. Class size is limited to 14 people.

This course will be taught by Maurice Jean-Baptiste Brochet, a native of Paris with several years' experience teaching in New York, including at Berlitz and the Rennert School.

* We strongly recommend that students have a Netflix subscription so they can watch the films on their own before class.

There are no make-up classes. On the first day of class, each student will receive a syllabus that lists the weekly assignments so you can keep up with your studies if you have to miss a class.


If you wish to cancel your registration, you must contact Idlewild by telephone or email at least seven days before the start date of your class to receive a refund.

If you wish to postpone your registration to a later session, you must contact Idlewild by telephone or email at least three days before the start date of your class to receive a credit toward a future session (good for one year).
