Un Cheval sur le Balcon

 

Some of our French students have enjoyed watching a film called : 'Un Cheval sur le Balcon' recently! This is a great film about a 10 year old boy with Asperger's Syndrome who finds a horse on his neighbour's balcony and who forms a bond between the animal and it's owner.

We recommend watching occasional films in French ( with English sub-titles), as this can help develop good pronunciation, improve intonation and often give insight into the culture of the country. Another good idea is to watch the film in English but with French sub-titles! This may well extend vocabulary and improve comprehension.
