Some feedback from Autumn 2017 events

"I thought it was helpful to hear presentations in French and see the whole film in somewhere other than the classroom. It also gave me good experience of a French lecture at Queen’s and has intrigued me greatly."

"It gave me the option to listen to Irish and learn more about the short films we are studying. It was useful for my course and created a great opportunity for speaking Irish and mixing with other pupils who can speak it too. I enjoyed it and the craic was good!"

"I thought the day was very enjoyable and informative. It helped me better understand the film and also developed my vocabulary which will be helpful for my exam. I enjoyed the workshop and thought it was useful to do it with Dr Tame."
