You enjoy reading in French but need a little extra motivation to continue to do it on your own during the summer? Sign up for this series of classes, discover or re-discover Daudet and Giono, and enjoy the opportunity to practice your French while discussing your reading. Every few weeks, a new short story, a new discussion. Each story is relatively short and will not be a strain on your busy summer activities!

Lecture parfaite pour l’été, ces petits textes – contes ou légendes – parfois gais, tristounets, mélancoliques ou même moralistes, sont de petits chefs-d’œuvre de poésie, de malice, d’émotion, de tendresse et un hommage à ce bel et sauvage arrière-pays provençal où se déroule leur intrigue. Vous y découvrirez des personnages attachants qui sont entrés dans le folklore de notre belle littérature.

If you know that this is the right level for you, please sign up! If you are not sure, let us help: please get in touch by email.
