WHAT WILL WE READ TOGETHER?

Voici le livre que j’ai choisi : Barbe Bleue d’Amélie Nothomb.

french book club

Amélie Nothomb is one of my favorite contemporary writers. Je l’adore! She is just magnificent, immensely talented, and profoundly hilarious. I have read every single one of her novels (she writes 4 each year yet only publishes 1) several times and enjoy them every time un peu plus. Amélie’s version of Bluebeard is an exhilarating page turner filled with exquisite dialogues written with her usual impeccable syntax. Que demander de plus? Maybe hear her talk about her Barbe bleue? HERE!

 

BENEFITS

  • Improve your French comprehension skills in a completely safe & friendly environment with me, Amélie, et l’affreuse (mais délicieuse) Barbe bleue.
  • Practice reading, speaking, and listening to French while bursting out laughing at every page. This will ensure a rich discussion as well as expand your French vocabulary and sentence structure.
  • Learn French grammar & conjugation in a natural way thanks to a practical context.
  • Relax knowing that I’m here to manage our time together and make sure everyone gets a fair opportunity to participate.If you love this ideaSIGN UP by selecting the appropriate button below!

Did you know the original Barbe Bleue (Bluebeard) was written by 17th century French author, lawyer, and académicien Charles Perrault? With her usual genius and fabulous sense of humor, 21st century Amélie Nothomb revisited his tale… be prepared to be très surpris!

HOW IT WORKS

What will the Online French Book Club look like?

  • A series of 4 classes
  • Spread out over 4 weeks
  • Each class will last 1.5 hours 
  • I will divide our book Barbe Bleue into 4 parts, each part corresponding to 1 class.

I will be using this version of the book (below) and to make sure we all are on the same page (literally!) I will send you a copy so you don’t have to worry about ordering it.

May 25 : from page 45 to page 75
June 1 : from page 77 to page 99

HOW DID CYNTHIA LIKE HER COURSE?

“I would highly recommend taking this class, in fact I would return again because just being there in person with her is so instructive and worth probably 50 hours of trying to study on your own!

Cynthia Walker – Seattle USA
