From 6.30pm to 7.30pm: Free Cultural Workshop “Eloquence à la française” – Register here
Be it in a court or in university (like the lawyers in “Le Brio” screened for this French Friday), on stage, in literature, in politics, or in everyday life, French-speaking people are passionate about “l’éloquence“, “l’art du discours” : the art of speaking, infused with a subtle mix of logic, verve, sense of drama, elegance, depth and vanity, embodiment of the French culture and psychology. Join us for an entertaining glance at some famous French speeches, share the greatest moments of eloquence from your own culture and learn some tips for making any statement convincing and attractive in French.
