French Language Courses for Adults and Children!
The Alliance Française of New Haven will offer French adult classes this Winter at the beginner and intermediate levels and encourages all its members to go back to school to refresh their knowledge of French. The group also wishes the children of our Francophone and Francophile families to learn French at a young age and will offer French classes in which basic vocabulary will be taught through pictures and songs.
The adult classes will meet once a week from 5:45PM-7:45PM for 10 weeks at La Bourse (near State and Chapel Streets in New Haven). The adult classes will cost $300.00 (with a discount for early registration).
The two children's classes will meet in the same location for 45 minutes per class. The children's classes will cost $120 for 10 classes (with a discount for early registration). Please see classes tab for details.
All classes will be taught by the following experienced professors and native speakers: Marie-Dominique Boyce and Brigitte Lange. The adult classes will use the texts, French in Action, and Imaginez. The material, Tip Top, Level 1, will be used for the children's classes.

PIG ACROSS PARIS
When: Sun, December 8, 2:30pm – 2:30pm
Where: Cinestudio (Hartford)
Description of the movie:
(France, 1956) Directed by Claude Autant-Lara. Screenplay by Jean Aurenche and Pierre Bost; based on the novel by Mar-cel Ayme. Cast: Jean Gabin, Bouvril, Jeanette Batti, Louis de Funes. French cinephiles, prepare for an unexpected treat – the restored version of one of France’s best-loved film classics, which only received a brief U.S. release in the 1950s! The screenwriters Jean Aurenche and Pierre Bost (Forbidden Games), collaborated in a very dark comedy about Paris under Nazi occupation. Comic actor Bourvil plays a nervous cabby who hooks up with a charming and erudite trickster (Jean Gabin of Grand Illusion) for a series of mad schemes to transport four suitcases full of pork across Paris to sell on the black market, while looking out for the Gestapo in every darkened alley... “One of the most realistic, most caustic, most pitch-perfect films about daily life under the Occupation.” - director Bernard Tavernier (The Clockmaker, Round Midnight). 83 min. http://www.rialtopictures.com/pigparis.htmlmore details» copy to my calendar. Other screening times: Monday, December 9 at 7:30pm, Tuesday, December 10 at 7:30pm, Wednesday, December 11 at 7:30 pm.
