French Workshops

A workshop is a mini-group lesson (4 to 10 people) based on a specific cultural theme. The workshops are held mainly in French but the aim is to explore the regional cultures and traditions. There is a maximum of 10 students per workshop for optimum interaction between the teacher and the students. They are generally held once a month in the afternoons and last about 2 hours.
