Improve your French through Films!

This French course is aimed at people in Edinburgh with a good grasp of the language (from intermediate or B1). It provides a good mix of activities, both in terms of speaking and listening, aimed at developing your vocabulary and your understanding of rapidly spoken French.
The integration of video material (films) allows you to get to grips with slang and less formal aspects of the language. We normally spend 3 sessions over a single film. 

The first session involves watching the film (usually with English subtitles), followed by a discussion about the general themes explored in the movie. We also explore the film’s background (directors, script-writers, actors). ATTENTION: the first session usually starts earlier (typically at 7.30pm) to allow time for discussion after watching the film!

Then two further sessions include the study of extracts, with carefully designed exercises, followed by a discussion of the issues explored in the film – and beyond!
