Dive deeper into French culture and way of life in classes at the Advanced B2 level inspired by different themes and topics.

Culture shapes the way language is structured and the ways in which language is used. Expand your linguistic skills while exploring themes as diverse as pop culture, history, society, politics, philosophy, everyday life, and more. Using a variety of media—novels, films, documentaries, news articles, and more—you will have the opportunity to delve deeper into each topic.

This course is designed for the culture addict who would like to learn more about French and other Francophone cultures, as well as become more independent in speaking in French about more complex and challenging topics.

    La Pop Culture Française de 1945 à nos jours

    Qui savait qu’il existait une culture Pop en France? Oui, ça existe ! Une culture accessible à tous et pas seulement aux élites, inspirée par les Etats-Unis mais franchouillarde à souhait, née dans les décombres de la Seconde Guerre Mondiale.

    Cet hiver, nous explorerons les films à partir des années 50. Commençant avec Le Corbeau de Henri-Georges Clouzot, nous étudierons les films les plus marquants de chaque époque, comme Les 400 coups, L’homme de Rio, Jean de Florette, et Un Air de famille.

    Ce cours est pour vous si vous voulez une autre Histoire de France, celle qui est passée par le petit écran et la radio mais qui reste encore aujourd’hui bien ancrée dans l’univers culturel de beaucoup de Français … et de la nouvelle génération
