Dear Community Member,

At this time of year, French speakers usually say, "En mai, fais ce qu'il te plaît" (In May, do as you please). This might not (yet) be true this time around, as all of us are asked to practice selflessness, to be mindful not only for ourselves, but for everyone else's health and safety. So as we look inward, as we slow down, as we come together in new ways, let's keep supporting each other the best way we can! 

Many of you have attended our classes and online events and turned them into a successful social alternative during these times at home. Thank you for participating and making our community stronger! 

Do not miss our specialized and intensive French classes for Session 2 of Spring, as well as our upcoming online gatherings, conferences, ciné-salon, and more workshops!

On May 4-8, we are celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week: a huge THANK YOU to our amazing instructors!
