The Class


France – 2008
Laurent Cantet



Teacher François Marin and his colleagues are preparing for another school year teaching at a racially mixed inner city high school in Paris. The teachers talk to each other about their prospective students, both the good and the bad. The teachers collectively want to inspire their students, but each teacher is an individual who will do things in his or her own way to achieve the results they desire. They also have differing viewpoints on the students themselves, and how best to praise and discipline them. The administration of the school tries to be as fair as possible, which includes having student representatives sit on the student evaluation committee. Marin's class this year of fourteen and fifteen year olds is no different than previous years, although the names and faces have changed. Marin tries to get through to his students, sometimes with success and sometimes resulting in utter failure...

Learning activities include: listening activities, role plays, oral presentations, writing short paragraphs.

Topics covered include: exchanging information about family, friends and daily life; talking about school life in France and Australia; expressing likes and dislikes, pastimes and hobbies; describing people.
