Prerequisite: Conversation & Composition (FREN-UA 30). CONDUCTED IN FRENCH. This course is both a literature course that will allow you to study important French drama and a language course that will help you progress in French, especially in your oral expression. During the semester, we will traverse the centuries of French theater, lingering on certain authors and representative works. We will attempt to perform scenes for the pleasure of both the eyes and the ears. During this course, you will have regular phonetic exercises, you will read and study theater, you will give expository presentations on authors and contexts and you will memorize and recite/perform poems and scenes -- you will sometimes even write your own!

Use of dramatic situations and readings to help students overcome inhibitions in their oral use of language. The graduated series of exercises and activities is designed to improve pronunciation, intonation, expression, and body language. These include phonetic practice, poetry recitation, skits, improvisation, and memorization of dramatic texts. Reading, discussion, and performance of scenes from plays by renowned dramatists. Extensive use of audio and video material.
