French Theater Workshop
Improve your French as you develop dramatic technique! In this workshop-style class for advanced students, the emphasis will be on staging and performance as we analyze French theater of different periods and genres. Class activities will include dramatic readings, improvisation, and work on diction. By the end of the semester, students will notice an enhanced command of target-language grammar and syntax, improved pronunciation and fluency, and increased confidence with public speaking in French. The course will culminate in a public presentation of our work, so a high level of engagement and a willingness to participate in some rehearsals outside of class time are required.
Note: FREN 456 counts as a French literature course. It satisfies the University Discovery Learning requirement.
