Nice item showing group of American soldiers attempting to speak French.
World War One. American soldiers' French lesson.
Pan across large group of US soldiers; some standing; some sitting; in a large semicircle. CU instructor in a suit & hat; standing in front of signs with French phrases; gesturing with a pointer at comments about 'Cette guerre' and 'Ce siege'. Shot of the US guys all waving their hats around- pan across ( one guy standing in front just grinning; thinking of how he'll be able to parler avec les mademoiselles francaises.) More shots of the soldiers listening intently to the lesson. Repeats same footage. Education; language. school of sorts.
