> What an interesting project. I've been trying to talk a friend who teaches French to Americans to have her students write descriptions of paintings in French. Maybe they could describe the same painting in French and your students could also comment on their French? While they are giving feedback on your students' English? A sort of penpal arrangement? I think your choice of van Eyck's "Arnolfini Wedding" is a good one--clear imagery and lots of symbolism.
Bon chance!--Marcia Scurfield
