Reading a book in a foreign language 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!
So if you are ready to move into the realm of unabridged literature, let the adventure begin! You will be challenged as you continue to improve your vocabulary and solidify your knowledge of French grammar, not to mention insight into the Francophone cultures.

You will be asked to read approximately 20 to 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 online informational meeting, or simply get in touch!

Résumé de Trois jours et une nuit

« A la fin de décembre 1999, une surprenante série d’événements tragiques s’abattit sur Beauval, au premier rang desquels, bien sûr, la disparition du petit Rémi Desmedt.
Dans cette région couverte de forêts, soumise à des rythmes lents, la disparition soudaine de cet enfant provoqua la stupeur et fut même considérée, par bien des habitants, comme le signe annonciateur des catastrophes à venir.
Pour Antoine, qui fut au centre de ce drame, tout commença par la mort du chien… » Pierre Lemaitre
