Students dining in Paris. French professor Pascal Rollet will lead students for two weeks in Paris, where they will study Parisian life while touring the city. They will learn about French history as it explains the development of various places and monuments visited. They will learn about the main styles of architecture and principal schools of art. They will be taught to observe and imitate appropriate public behavior. They will be guided to make observations on the French daily way of life, including greetings, food and table manners, shopping, family behavior, and friendship. They will make observations of public institutions and compare them with institutions in the United States.

Students with minimal or no knowledge of the language will learn and practice basic greetings and expressions, while more advanced students of French will serve as their interpreters. The second weekend will be spent in Normandy in the professor’s hometown of Deauville and will include a tour of the Landing Beaches. There are no prerequisites for this course.
