Last day of class!!!

Filed under Uncategorized

Unbelievable! The school year is coming to a end!

It has been a lovely year teaching at Willamette! French conversation group had some great folks!

The last day of class was super sunny, so the student of Conversational French went out for a scavenger hunt, and even put their feet in the Mill Stream to get all the clues! So what was the mystery word guys?!

We ended this year by a nice chat around food! Happy summer break Francophone bearcats! Bonnes vacances!!!

Senior theses presentations

Filed under Uncategorized

Congrats to our 4 seniors majoring in French who presented their theses last Wednesday!

Rachel Heisterkamp opened this morning with an interesting topic : theater of the absurd, discussing Beckett’s En Attendant Godot, and Eugène Ionesco’s Cantatrice chauve.

She was followed by Dominique Cleary who proposed a reflection on Wallon, an endangered language of Belgium!

Matilda Cornes was next with her theses on graffiti in Paris during May 68!

Finally, Jason Normand closed this enriching morning with his study on young French departing for Jihad.

The 30th of April was not only theses presentation day, but also Dominique’s birthday! Happy birthday Dominique. Eat your cake, You deserve it!
