Year 12 French Excursion

On Monday the 10th of August, the Year 12 French class headed to the Melbourne International Film Festival to see a French film with subtitles called “Being 14”.

Set in the inner-suburb of Paris, the film follows three girls attending middle school. The director’s intention is to show the challenges that 14-year-old girls face as they grow up nowadays, from relationships with boys, managing their online presence and dealing with their families.

This films showed some interesting insights into the everyday life of French teenagers and the differences with Australia.  Students were engaged by this story as it depicted the lives of people who are nearly the same age as them. These similarities and differences sparked many remarks in class the next day and led to some interesting discussions.
