Course description

Have you always wondered what else there is to discover about France and the other French speaking countries other than their renowned food and famous fashion brands? Do you enjoy expressing your views in writing and speaking in French? Are you perhaps interested in becoming a translator, an interpreter or a journalist abroad? Would you like to learn the history of contemporary France? Are you also interested in sociology, sports, health issues, the media and many more cultural aspects?
