Year 8 Visit the Institut Francais


On Thursday 15 June, Year 8 French linguists went to the Institut Francais in South Kensington to learn more about French comic strips.

We were given a tour of the Art Deco library and the girls had the opportunity to discover some famous characters such as Tintin, Lucky Luke, Spirou, Titeuf and Asterix et Obelix.  After a fun library quest, we watched the acclaimed adaptation of the comic strip, Adele Blanc-Sec, at the Cine Lumiere.

The following week, the girls wrote film reviews in class which were then submitted to the Institut Francais.

Well done to Nila Suvendran (8D) who won the competition!  All reviews will be published on Culturetheque, le blog ( ).
