Welcome to FRE 124 2017! This is the third year we are offering this innovative class at Daystar University. The idea behind the class is to introduce both French minors and interested students to various cultural, historical and political aspects of the French-speaking world.

Apart from enjoying the food, cinema, literature and politics of the Francophone world, you will get to know key historical elements that will often reappear in the French language classes.

For the first two classes, we will talk about France from its origins in antiquity to today, and how that history affected countries with predominantly black populations in the Antilles (Caribbean) and Africa.
