Speak French in Dallas!

Have you always wanted to speak French?  Or have your skills gotten rusty from lack of practice?

Our new courses offered through Southern Methodist University’s Lifelong Learning may be just what you’re looking for!

For the Fall 2020 semester, SMU Lifelong Learning classes will be conducted as fully online offerings, due to Covid-19 concerns. We all look forward to reuniting students and instructors on campus, hopefully in the Winter 2021 semester.
