Afternoon and evening activities
Afternoon activities will include some group based educational activities as well as some guided cultural visits.
Bordeaux is bursting with great places to eat and drink and it is highly likely that some evening activities may involve a glass of some rather good red wine. Optional of course !
Classroom based afternoon discussions will focus on topics raised by the group as well as looking at, and reflecting on, the study of linguistics and socio cultural developments in France through the prism of the press, cinema, French literature and music
After the two week course the aim is that you will leave with ideas and processes that are directly applicable in the classroom, and have an appreciation of new teaching materials and ideas.
Students who complete the programme will receive a certificate of attendance as well as a final report.
