COFFEE HOUR IN FRENCH
Do you want to take a break?
Come to the Coffee Hour and enjoy the opportunity to chat in French! Food, travel, movies, pastimes, and more are “au menu”.
I am inviting you to join me at our Virtual Coffee hour on Wednesday, April 7, from 4 - 5 PM.
Venez faire une pause au Café!
Vous voulez relaxer, discuter de tout et de rien, de nourriture, de voyages, de vos passe-temps favoris, rire, échanger des expériences d’enseignement et tout ça en français, alors venez au Café. Il me fera plaisir de vous y accueillir.
If you are interested, please register before April 6. In order to register for this event, you will need to log in to your PSMLA account or create a new account.
