**

Sort of an international version of Stand & Deliver, the narrator, an instructor of French language & literature in France, has such disdain for his students that he’s not going to endear himself with a potential youth audience! The structure of the dialogue, with so little attribution, may be somewhat challenging for readers to distinguish whom is speaking.
