Whether you are 25 or 65 years old, a new member or a long-time San Franciscan, join this class to expand your French skills and understanding!

During each class, you will start with "Quoi de neuf?", a great time to connect with other students and talk in French.

You will then read short texts from a variety of important French literary authors and well-known writers from the francophone world. You will be introduced to the rich literary tradition of France such as Guy de Maupassant, Alphonse Daudet, Emile Zola, André Theuriet and more.

Studying a variety of texts will give you an opportunity to improve your grammar and learn new vocabulary and language structures. By the time you reach the end of this session you will be pleased to find that your reading skills have greatly improved.

This class will provide you opportunity for expression through general classroom and small-group discussions and oral reports.

Don't wait to join this class, connect with interesting and diverse people in your community, and apply what you learn in conversation.
