French Club

Contents[Hide]

In order to promote and encourage the french language at the Convent High School, the French Department has put in place or a French club for all the students.

The club is a space to have fun as well as a space to explore ideas unable to be expressed in class, and to discuss a variety of topics. All these will help the students to generate a wealth of conversation or, what other might call rich and meaningful conversation.

When there is a lesson, you have to do your lesson but it is also nice to know you have a place where the point is just to talk and to know that the language is not so much an innocuous tool for mankind but its master, controlling what is possible in deed and action.

Finally, the students will be able to see and express themselves in the language by keeping an open mind.
