Me and my workplace.
If you're like many students, you need a job. But a job interview can be a challenge, especially if French isn't your langue maternelle. This class can make a big difference by helping you improve your ability to communicate in a variety of everyday situations. It will help you build the confidence you need to answer questions with ease. Topics of general interest, newspapers, magazines and short videos will be used to enrich your vocabulary and stimulate discussions. Completing this class will mean you're two thirds of the way to earning your certificate of proficiency. Ne lâchez pas!
