Friday, June 1, from 5:30pm-7pm
Advanced B2 and Expert C1/C2 levels

Cet atelier en français n’est pas un cours magistral : toutes les personnes présentes doivent participer pleinement et exprimer leur connaissance, leurs opinions, etc. A partir de textes, photographies et vidéos, nous étudions ensemble l’origine et le déroulement des grands évènements ou des périodes marquantes de l’Histoire de France. Mais l’étude ne se limite pas à la France, même si cette nation en est le point de départ; notre regard se portera également sur les conséquences internationales, qu’elles soient immédiates ou futures. Nous aborderons tous les domaines de la « vie internationale » : relations, politique, économie, etc.
