Theater and Language

This course aims at developing ease and fluidity of oral communication in French. With support of three contemporary Francophone plays, students will discover the French languages diversity by working on pronunciation, quality of their voice, gesture, breathing...

The course will be articulated in a dynamic, participative and creative way around three axes:
1)Dramaturgic study of texts: reading, discussion, analyze;
2)Exercises stemming from the theatrical pedagogy to improve the qualities of articulation, pronunciation, memorization, verbal ease and public speaking;
3)Staging extracts of the studied plays, which will close the course
This year, we’ll be exploring the theme “Brotherhoods/Sisterhoods/Families”
