French 100 aims at refining your written expression in French. Throughout the quarter, we will analyze four short stories: ‘Le Retour de Mamzelle Annette’ by Joseph Zobel, ‘La Montagne de Feu’ by Suzanne Dracius, ‘La Leçon d’Histoire’ by Maryse Condé, and the novella ‘Eureka’ by Madame de Duras. The thorough study of these short stories will allow us to better understand the techniques of description and storytelling. In order to develop and improve your written French style, we will also review important grammatical structures. You will apply what we are studying in class by writing your own short story in French. Taught in French.
