Ah, nature. We don't often think of nature when we think of culture, but of course nature abounds! WICE is happy to bring a little bit of both naturel and culturel to you online this coming Tuesday! Join us for the following lectures:
"Raise your words, not your voice.
It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder." -Rumi
Language may be counted amongst one of the most amazing of human inventions. And while yes, some still rely on grunting and gesturing alone to make their point, many more of us still trust the structure of words in speech and writing to convey our thoughts from one to another. Here at WICE, many of us revel in both its technical and artistic qualities that inevitably brings us together.
As we continue to social distance, many of our foreign language, creative writing, lectures, and book group courses are currently offered remotely...
Dive deeper into writing – or join a lively talk with a New York Times bestselling author Craig Carlson. Expand your French grammar skills in an on-going course or group discussion or take part in our bi-language book group where we read and discuss a featured novel (Currently John le Carré’s Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy / La Taupe)
You can view all our courses on our course Calendar here >>
