French & History: WWI revisited

six-week French cultural workshop that marks the 100th anniversary of WWI armistice (1914-1918).

This workshop offers participants the opportunity to partake in discussions, to practise French and to study WWI through different aspects and perspectives of the conflict. Students will revisit "la Grande guerre" through Art (literature, poetry, cinema, music and visual arts), (re)discover the strong bonds formed between French and ANZAC troops and the life of the soldiers in the trench. Join us for this journey with Enzo, our French Teacher specialised in History.
