French Weekend Intensive & Trip to Quebec

Express Fluency is offering a weekend French intensive November 4th-6th and a trip to Quebec November 10-12. Both of these opportunities are geared toward "intermediate" French speakers.

Many of us studied French for years in school and have lots of vocabulary and grammar rules locked away in our brains, yet we struggle to speak. This class will help unlock your brain and improve your comprehension and speaking skills. It draws upon the latest language-acquisition research to help students speak French comfortably. Conversation, storytelling, videos, and reading are all part of this dynamic and entertaining class.
