Small class size

The small class size provides opportunities for individual attention and participation with plenty of time for exchange.  Maximum enrollment is 16 students; average size for the previous session was 6 students.

Interesting topics

Guided discussions on French language and culture focus on a different topic each week.  Prior sessions have explored the Languedoc-Roussillon and Berry regions of France, the Valentine connection, linguistic peculiarities, and gastronomic specialties.
