ASU to Host French, Russian Programs

January 27, 2012

Angelo State University’s Department of English and Modern Languages will host French conversation and Russian enrichment programs during the spring semester as part of a community outreach initiative.

French “Café et Conversation” (Coffee and Conversation) meetings will run from 5-6 p.m. Mondays through April 30 in Room 110 of the ASU Houston Harte University Center, 1910 Rosemont Drive.  Room 110 is located in the dining area near the Freshens-Proudly Serving Starbucks Coffee bar.  The faculty-led program affords members of the community and ASU students the opportunity to practice French at all levels in an informal setting. 

The Russian Enrichment Program will consist of three events, and is co-sponsored by the ASU Russian Club.  Each event will run from 5:30-6:30 p.m. in Room 125 of the ASU Academic Building, 2502 Dena Drive. 

Mike Burnett, assistant director of the University Theatre program, will make a presentation on “Russian Theatre” on Monday, Feb. 20.  On Tuesday, March 20, Dr. Scott Williams, assistant professor of physics, will give a talk titled “An Outsider’s Impressions of Moscow/XRF Analysis on Kopeks” about X-ray fluorescence analysis of Russian coins circa 1877-1933.   The final program on Tuesday, April 17, will feature Dr. Kenneth Heineman, head of the ASU History Department, speaking on former Russian dictator Joseph Stalin. 

Both the Russian and French programs are open free to the public.
