French for Travelers: May Workshops

During the month of May, the Alliance is offering a duo of French for Travelers workshops, each with sections for A1 and for A2/B1 students.

There will be two parts to the workshop series, each offered at the A1 and the A2/B1 levels.

Workshop Part 1 and Part 2 deal with different situations you will encounter.
Each workshop is stand-alone so take either one first.

Each workshop is $30 for Alliance students, or the two workshops for $50.
