Join us for the winter session of our popular French for Parents classes! French for Parents is an opportunity to improve your French with other adults. This course is suited to beginner and intermediate students who want to become more comfortable using French, and have a better grasp on the basic rules of the language.

Each week the instructor uses a thematic approach in order to cover a range of important topics. The first half of each class is concept based, including learning vocabulary, grammar, and structure. The second half of each class is practice and oral activities, so you can put into place that night’s lesson.
