GREENVILLE, S.C. (January 27, 2017) – Rob Loach, professor of modern language and literature at Bob Jones University, will present his three recently published French literature adaptations at the South Carolina Foreign Language Teacher’s Association’s (SCFLTA) conference February 11 in Lexington, South Carolina.
The three book adaptations, entitled Contes de Maupassant et de Daudet, Les Misérables: Tome 1: Fantine, and Le Comte de Monte-Cristo: Tome 1: Le prisonnier du château d’If were adapted and written by Loach and published through Amazon. The first, an adaptation of French short stories, is designed as an introduction to reading French literature. Les Miserables and Le Comte de Monte-Cristo (The Count of Monte-Cristo) are both adaptations of the first sections of the two pieces of classic French literature.
All three adaptations are designed for use in middle school to intermediate French courses and are available for purchase through Amazon and CreateSpace.com.
Loach will present these adaptions through a series of workshops designed to help foreign language teachers teach foreign literature. Loach also presented his adaptations to the South Carolina American Association of Teachers of French (SCAATF) in Columbia, South Carolina, in November.
Loach has served as a foreign language teacher at BJU for 33 years and taught French and German on the high school level in Michigan for 11 years. Loach currently teaches two elementary and two intermediate French courses, as well as a French composition course.
