Students will be engaged in activities that are rich in visual cues and focus on developing communicative enjoyment and confidence.

The program has been designed as a continuous three term curriculum and students are encouraged to participate for the entire three terms to get maximum benefit from the program.

    Did you grow up reading Madeline? Watching French soc-cer or the Tour de France on TV? Love to eat at local French eateries? Maybe youve been lucky enough to visit or even live in France or another French-speaking country. If so, then you have an idea of how rich and varied French culture is, from food, traditions and sports to literature, music and film. Of all countries in the world, France is #1 in visits by tourists, and French is spoken in 60 different countries throughout the world. In this class we will ex-plore the many facets of French culture in a fun and hands-

    on context, while learning some basics of the language as well. Join us every Wednesday for a fresh foray into the world of French and Francophone culture and language. If you arent currently a Francophile (lover of all things French), you will be after taking this class!
