Embed - July 26: Culture through music - La Fouine

In this post I have embedded a quietubed version of La Fouine's Tomber Pour Elle and included a link to the lyrics.  
I used this song as a listening exercise in my class, but if I were to talk about culture, I could ask them them to pick out words relevant to that.  References to the RER, the apostrophed words, and the slang would expose them to other aspects of French culture.  When I showed this clip in class, many of my students were surprised that the artist and the people in the video were not all European.  Just seeing a wider view of francophone identity can be beneficial in itself.
