Educational Workshops in French

Educational workshops are a fun way to expose your students to French as it’s spoken in everyday life. Choose between one of our thematic workshops below, or email us with an idea and we can create a personalized workshop for you and your students. Please include the number of students and their level(s) of French. Workshops are taught in immersion by one of our experienced, native-speaking teachers, and offer opportunities for students to gain a different perspective on their language learning and knowledge of francophone cultures. Workshops are offered virtually through Zoom or in-person.
