- for those who have roughly the equivalent of 2+ years of college French.
- Location - will alternated between north hills and Shadyside/Squirrel Hill.
- Days: Now it's on Thursday but can change if we can get more people to participate.

This discussion group is designed to increase and perfect the ability to express oneself in spoken and written French. Oral emphasis will be on precision, variety, and vocabulary acquisition.

We will examine the evolving social and political landscape of France in the 21st century, the culture and expressions of everyday - as well as topics such as the 5th Republic, Macron’s government (pros and cons) immigration, French identity and the notion of “Frenchness." We will focus on other various topics such as: family and the educational system; intellectuals contemporary ideas; art, architecture, and design; Paris; music; literature and cinema.

Emphasis will be on oral expression and the acquisition of specialized vocabulary. Sources will include articles from the French press, documents, and film.
