                                    LUNCH & LEARN!

During the month of November, the Alliance Française will offer four new one-day classes especially designed to introduce you to the French culture and language.  

Cost is $25 per class or $90 for the package of four classes.

Uncover your connection to French language and culture. This foreign language might not be so foreign after all. This class will be taught primarily in English, providing insights to enlighten and inspire your language learning. Thursday, Nov.3, 12pm-1:30pm.

A little bit does go a long way. Being able to introduce yourself, ask some simple questions and use polite expressions will ease the flow of conversation with French speakers. Navigate travel, networking and/or professional situations with more confidence. Tuesday, Nov. 8 12pm-1:30pm.

Sharpen your cultural competency. You may not yet speak a word of French, but you'll be able to impress with your savoir-faire. Avoid embarrassing faux pas' as you discover some of the most important cultural norms and values that are the fabric of French culture. Friday Nov.11, 12pm-1:30pm.

Are you preparing for an upcoming trip to France or a Francophone country? Learn to communicate in simple French for travel situations. This class focuses on greetings, asking for directions, time, money exchange, and ordering food. Bon voyage! Thursday Nov.17, 12pm-1:30pm.
