French conversation level class for adults :

given by Jacqueline Doiron, French teacher

Wednesdays: 5:30-6:30 PM starting September 25, 2019

Location: Immigrant Welcome Center, Portland

Dear Francophone and Francophile Friends, I invite you to participate in a series of weekly French conversation tables organized by the Alliance Française. If you are French speaking but do not have the opportunity to speak French often or if you have an intermediate or advanced level in French, these courses are for you.

My goal for us will be to have fun while speaking French. These meetings will be both engaging and dynamic and conducted in a friendly and respectful atmosphere. We will explore the language but also French and Francophone culture. Through various activities, including movies, videos, newspaper articles, songs, games, dialogues, we will improve our comprehension and speaking abilities.

* payment online or by checks at the Alliance Francaise on your first class
