Opera and Art in the French Foreign Language Classroom.
Mid-Atlantic Journal of Foreign Language Pedagogy, v1 p136-141 Spr 1993
It has previously been shown that an opera can successfully be integrated into a high school or college language class. It is suggested that an entire semester could be devoted to just French operas and French art, using corresponding literary texts for comparative purposes. Grammar points are included as needed; conversation about the stories bring in cultural material about the mores of the period. The operas suggested for a semester class are: "La Voix humaine,""L'Heure espagnole,""Peleas et Melisande,""Louise,""Les Contes d'Hoffman," and "Manon." (Author/VWL)
