Program Overview

Designed to take full advantage of the city’s abundant cultural resources, the KIIS Paris II program offers students a selection of intermediate to advanced French-language courses. With five weeks in Paris, students become intimately familiar with this modern, cosmopolitan city, celebrated for its savoir-faire and joie de vivre. Students are encouraged to use their language skills both in class and while exploring the many sides of this marvelous city. In short, the language experience does not end after exiting the classroom— it only begins as you set out to explore Paris’s venerable architecture, parks, neighborhoods, restaurants, and cafés.

Language Requirement: Yes. All courses taught in French.

Accommodations: Hotel, 2-4 students per room

OrientationMandatory orientation on Saturday, April 14 in Bowling Green, KY. See Orientation for more information.

We will explore the city of Paris in famous poems written in its honor, and we will discover how and why the city appealed so strongly to so many artists.

Dr. Jeff Peters

The goal of this course is to explore the history of the French theater by attending performances of plays in Paris. We will emphasize textual analysis and principles of production: staging, costumes, acting, set design, lighting, music, etc.
