Less than 20 kilometres from the Ecole Polytechnique lies one of the most beautiful cities in the world, bubbling over with energy, buzzing with cultural events deserving of our attention since they can enrich our lives and our perception of the world. “If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast”, said Ernest Hemingway.
In the course, you will be asked to present to the group at least one event taking place in Paris at the same time as our course, in such a way that a maximum number of people in the group will become curious enough to want to see it, or in some way participate in it, if this is at all possible.
But this course will above all else be the occasion for you to speak English. There will be constant debates on the current news in the world, social, political and cultural, and possibly the relationship between this news and cultural events in Paris. We will also look at the way in which certain English-speaking writers, including Hemingway, George Orwell and Gertrude Stein, have presented Paris to the world.
