For French, students in the course Nineteenth Century French Novel and Society interpreted themes from the novels of Stendhal, Flaubert, and Zola (and showed their creative side) in puppet shows.
Nathan Graber and Evan Jones
Featured today are Nathan Graber and Evan Jones who, taking a page from Zola, depict a household that has too much wine and too little money. Here's the first section of their skit, L'amour et l'argent.
Representing Chinese, our feature is Jessica Harmon's Reflections on Study Abroad: Beijing and Southern China.
Our featured student in Japanese is Jacqueline Barmore who shares one of her experiences while visiting Japan in her presentation entitled I Went to a Japanese Elementary School.
Mikayla Roller and Rebecca Wolfe's skit entitled Our Lives at William Jewell is our Arabic feature.
Congratulations to all our participants! The Recital was a success!
