MC: Tilda Lovisign up
Through the practice of modern art (drawing, painting, collage, sculpture) you will learn how to communicate fluently in French and quickly overcome the language barrier.
This course is led exclusively in French. It is an original linguistic art course created by Tilda Lovi, French Artist and pedagogue, especially for foreigners, as for children as for adults, with different programs. By practicing original forms of visual arts, drawing, painting, collage, photography, sculpture, demontage-assemblage, performance, you will gain knowledge of French language and culture in a stimulating creative atmosphere. Without neither fear nor language barrier, you will soon assimilate the deep mechanisms and automatisms of nowadays French. You will be so strongly involved in the art practices, so emotionally occupied by your esthetical discoveries, and so surprised by this new artistic experience, that you will even forget that you are speaking a foreign language… Art is a source of wondering, it contributes to the development of our emotional intelligence. This intelligence is very useful in certain domains, as learning foreign languages; as well it helps you to understand the “mentality” of a language and its culture. The specific method is using the same emotional springs as my art teaching, that’s why it works so well! The golden keys: sense of curiosity, sense of wonder, desire of creativity, emotionality. And the most important: be a child and continue to stay a child as long as possible! We work in limited groups (6-8 students). You can join us only if you reserved in advance. All artistic materials are included. We guaranty a nice and friendly atmosphere!
While you are learning Tilda Lovi will use the principles of cognitive psychology and intuitive grammar which will enable you to acquire new vocabulary and language structures without doing boring exercises and having to learn set-phrases off by heart.
