French for Adults @ Wells Hall

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.

French Summer Camp session A @ Wells Hall | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

Our summer camps introduce children to different languages and cultures by providing a fun learning environment that focuses on games, songs, and other playful interactions. The curricula are theme-based and include topics of interest and relevance to children. Different activity types are alternated with games and hands-on as well as visually activated learning. In our lessons, we try to connect the new knowledge with the community by visiting campus locations such as the dairy store and the botanical gardens. All camps take place on MSU’s campus.

French is open to children ages 6-12. No previous knowledge is required and children of higher levels can be accommodated.

We are offering two French camps this summer. The topics covered in both camps are different. Students can register for either or both camps.

French camp A runs Monday-Friday, July 9-13, 2018 from 8:30 am – 4 pm, sack lunch provided by parents. Morning-only option available (8:30 am – 12 pm).

Before and after care available upon request for an additional charge. Multiple-program/child discounts are available (10%). Camps will be cancelled if fewer than 5 students enroll.
