Annual French project museum 2016

ZaZu Lippert

When walking into the Student Union, one could hear students debating about politics or talking about comics and countries in French, with poster boards and powerpoints to display their ideas. French 4 Honors and French AP classes held their annual French Museum on Wednesday, April 27, providing students with the opportunity to present projects about French culture and French-speaking countries (also known as “francophone” countries) around the world. It also gave students in lower-level French classes the chance to immerse themselves in the language’s culture for the night. Explore some of the exhibits below.

Juniors Saagar Godithi and Ganesh Valliappan from French 4 Honors studied the North African country Algeria for their project. One thing that they found particularly interesting about the region was its unique style of music.

Seniors Niti Pawar and Sindhu Majeti from French AP presented about marriage in France. There is a contract called the PAC in France that is similar to a civil union in the U.S., as they explained in their presentation.
