Reading a book in French might appear a bit daunting – not understanding everything, having to look up too many words – and the actual selection of a book, a discouraging task. But if someone chooses the book for you and holds your hand throughout the process by allowing you to tackle it in small manageable pieces that you get to discuss once a week… you may be in for a pleasant and highly rewarding experience that will contribute to boost your confidence!

If you are ready to move into the realm of unabridged literature, let the adventure begin! You will be challenged as you continue to increase your vocabulary and solidify your knowledge of French grammar, not to mention insight into the Francophone cultures.

You will be asked to read between 20 and 30 pages a week (at home) and on Friday you will meet with your classmates and instructor for an hour of discussion, clarifications, explanations, etc. — in French of course!

If you need assistance to determine if this class is right for you, we would be happy to help.
Please attend our open house on January 10th or get in touch.

Entre les murs
Quatrième de couverture de l’édition Folio
“Ne rien dire, ne pas s’envoler dans le commentaire, rester à la confluence du savoir et de l’ignorance, au pied du mur. Montrer comment c’est, comment ça se passe, comment ça marche, comment ça ne marche pas. Diviser les discours par des faits, les idées par des gestes. Juste documenter la quotidienneté laborieuse.”
Entre les murs s’inspire de l’ordinaire tragi-comique d’un professeur de français. Dans ce roman écrit au plus près du réel, François Bégaudeau révèle et investit l’état brut d’une langue vivante, la nôtre, dont le collège est la plus fidèle chambre d’échos.
Prix France Culture – Télérama 2006.
