Did you know that French is the only language, other than English, spoken on five continents? Our French conversation course is designed for individuals who have had some previous instruction in French and for those who wish to brush up on their speaking skills. It is ideal for anyone traveling to a French-speaking area of the world who would like practical communication skills to carry on a basic conversation at an airport, hotel, train station, or a restaurant.
Advance your practical communication skills with our experienced language instructors, interact with other like-minded people in class, and learn about the nuances of how to navigate a different culture. Experience the joy of being back on campus through this enriching opportunity that will help you keep your brain fit and stay sharp intellectually. Our small group sizes and supplemental online resources provide hands-on learning experiences for individuals with and without prior foreign language knowledge.
All classes meet in Wells Hall.
French for Adults meets on Tuesdays from 6:30-8:30 pm, starting May 15 and running for 10 weeks through July 24, 2018. There will be no class session on Tuesday, July 3.
This course targets beginners and advanced beginners with no/little/some prior experience in the target language.
We invite you to hang out with us all weekend as we break outside the museum walls and celebrate our collection! Stop by from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. May 19th and/or May 20th for a first look at the new MSU Broad Art Lab and explore the inaugural exhibition Mining the Collection, curated by the MSU Art History Association and students with an interest in museum studies. Get a taste of what’s to come in this experimental space with a rotation of activities ranging from pop-up conversations to art-making workshops and offerings from local vendors. Before you leave, take a moment to share your ideas for future collaborations and activities in the space. This expansion is made possible in part through a generous gift from the MSU Federal Credit Union.
