Students in FREN 101 worked on a midterm project involving studying the “vous êtes super” (you are great) campaign in which people in French-speaking countries hold signs with positive messages for passers-by. Students watched a video, reflected on that event, and created their own signs in French. They were so enthusiastic that they asked their instructor, Dr. Jessica Sertling Miller, if they could share their positive message with the campus community. So, on Friday March 30th, students shared compliments and encouragements to fellow students in front of Centennial Hall. Even though they had been learning French for only 8 weeks, they were able to communicate in a creative way and make a positive impact in the day of many people who happened to walk by. Signs showcased different pronouns and agreements, and included “tu es important” (you are important), “vous êtes un travailleur acharné” (you work hard), and “nous sommes merveilleux” (we are marvelous).
