EVENTS & CONFERENCES

  • Laurel Zuckerman, author of "Sorbonne Confidential"

    March 26 2008, 18:30 - 18:30
    Location: AmCham France

    Education Minister Xavier Darcos recently announced his ambition to make France a “bilingual country.” Yet as Sorbonne Confidential (Fayard 2007) hilariously reveals, serious systemic obstacles exist to learning English in France. Having “split the academic world with a book that relates her experiences at the heart of the archaic French teacher-training system” (The Times), author Laurel Zuckerman, a municipal counselor and HEC graduate, will talk about what these obstacles are and how to lift them.
