          Let's talk about cinema!

          During this time of quarantine, it's important to socialize and have fun! And it's even better when you can do so by practicing your French and sharing your love of cinema and Francophones cultures.


          How does it work ? 

          • Each week, we have chosen a film for you to view at home; our selections are available via various streaming services.
          • Every participant watches the film before the discussion at a time that fits their own schedule.
          • On Friday at 5PM, participants join a meeting on Zoom and discuss about the film.


          It's a donation-based event (suggested donation: $10).

              Let's talk about cinema!

              During this time of quarantine, it's important to socialize and have fun! And it's even better when you can do so by practicing your French and sharing your love of cinema and Francophones cultures.


              How does it work ? 

              • Each week, we have chosen a film for you to view at home; our selections are available via various streaming services.
              • Every participant watches the film before the discussion at a time that fits their own schedule.
              • On Friday at 5PM, participants join a meeting on Zoom and discuss about the film.


              It's a donation-based event (suggested donation: $10).

              Antoine moves home to help his mom drive the mobile grocery, when his dad's hospitalized. He brings Claire along, hoping she'll become more than a friend. He drives around Provence's countryside, selling mainly to old people.

              Antoine, 30 ans, mène une existence sans but jalonnée de petits boulots. Lorsque son père se retrouve tout à coup hospitalisé, il accepte, non sans réticence, d'aider sa mère à tenir l'épicerie familiale à la campagne. C'est désormais lui qui fera la tournée des hameaux isolés. Une nouvelle vie commence.

                 De l'Art!

                July: Impressionism


                INTERMEDIATE


                Interested in Art but all your wine and paint activities have been cancelled due to the pandemic?


                We've got you covered! This class is designed as an immersion for intermediate levels. Although a few structures and useful words will be provided during each session, the focus is conversation. In this class, we will describe and analyze Impressionist art and learn about a different artist each week. Come just this once to quench your Renoir thirst or come every week to acquire structures through repetition, the choice is yours.

                       De l'Art!

                      July: Impressionism


                      INTERMEDIATE


                      Interested in Art but all your wine and paint activities have been cancelled due to the pandemic?


                      We've got you covered! This class is designed as an immersion for intermediate levels. Although a few structures and useful words will be provided during each session, the focus is conversation. In this class, we will describe and analyze Impressionist art and learn about a different artist each week. Come just this once to quench your Renoir thirst or come every week to acquire structures through repetition, the choice is yours.
