Gérard Philipe in 1955. Taken by Stevan Kragujević

This weekend course is held entirely in French. It focuses on various topics illustrated through literature and art, often related to present cultural events, and aimed at language improvement. The texts, chosen from a wide range of classic and modern writers, will be used as a basis for discussion throughout the sessions. A variety of audio-visual documents will enlighten the weekend theme and expand your knowledge of French culture. These advanced courses are designed for those with a good mastery of French and you will be expected to undertake prior reading to participate actively in the course. The linguistic level required is Advanced; that is, B2–C1 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, but slightly less fluent participants are very welcome too. A certain lack of confidence in oral expression at first will soon be overcome. It is essential that the comprehension of spoken and written French is very good.
