Being too informal during a job interview can lead to a disaster but being too formal while socializing at a party will also make you feel awkward. This 3-hour workshop will give you the opportunity to discover the French of everyday life—the one you will hear on the metro, in cafés, or at your friend’s house. You will also explore linguistic patterns such as casual speech, "verlan" and slang, short forms for texting, and the highly creative "parler jeune" (literally, "youth talk").
