Note: 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").

This workshop is a fun way to feel more confident about your everyday use of the language, to become more familiar with French culture, and to understand how the language evolves.
