Discovery Modern Languages Study Morning


New for 2018, and building on our partnership with 1+2 PanTayside, we are pleased to introduce a new strand of activity for upper secondary students of French, based on feature-length films in the target language.

Built around a screening of one of the festival films – Rachid Hami’s La mélodie (Orchestra Class) – the morning will include a pre-screening introduction to the film, a full subtitled presentation of the feature and then (after a short break) an opportunity to engage in some practical French language activities related to the issues raised in the film. 

Usually with films presented during the festival we very much hope that teachers will have used the pre-screening activities in the educational resource pack with their students before they travel to DCA. For this event, we would prefer teachers not to prepare their students with any materials related to the specific film, so that the pre-screening introduction activity will engage students who have no prior knowledge of the film they are about to see.

Please note that because of the extended length of this event, tickets will cost £6 per student (accompanying adults free) and we will be unable to assist with transport to and from this study morning.

We are open for school bookings from 11:00 on Thu 23 August until Fri 2 November (with priority booking at our Teachers Preview).

Please book early as many films sell out. To be certain of our assistance with your travel arrangements please book before Wed 26 September.

To book, please call DCA Box Office on 01382 432 444.
