Speak French with Nacer!
Nacer Chambi discusses three important themes. Develop oral comprehension and conversational ability through a series of important themes. In his first session, Nacer will provide a short introduction to Algerian literature written in French. Day 2 will cover the French governmental response to the current COVID-19 health crisis, while day 3 will analyse the origins of stereotypes. Taken on their own, or as an accompaniment to Nacer’s workshop on Albert Camus’s La Peste, these themes allow a consideration of current problems the world faces today.
Tuesdays | From June 20th to July 11th
Level: B1-B2 | Intermediate to Advanced
