Bonjour, Comment allez-vous?: Conversational French

Join us for this 5-week conversational or everyday French language course, where students will focus on learning basic communication, vocabulary, and cultural aspects to use for everyday life in France and French-speaking places. 

This course is suitable for people who are interested in French language and culture, or perhaps food and wine vocabulary. It doesn’t matter if you've never taken a French class or any other language course before. Whatever your reason for wanting  to learn French, you will have fun and learn a lot. Specifically, you will learn how to communicate in a basic way or to get around as well as how to greet others, introduce yourself, and ask IMPORTANT questions in French.
