The French Basketeer is officially teaching French classes! Well, sort of... In partnership with Cargo & Company, we are having a night of French You Can Use, a discussion of various aspects of life in France and speaking French. Last night we covered my tips for how to get by on a limited vocabulary, and how to build your vocabulary and tune your ear without traveling to France. We also discussed the do's and don'ts of greeting people, and what the salesperson is actually saying when you enter a French shop. We covered some other fun topics that will also be of great use to you when you travel to France...insider tips and facts.
We got everyone's jaw loosened up with a little wine and cheese soufle and salad; I wasn't sure if I was going to be on the mark since this was the first class, but all the ladies thought it was fantastic, especially Sue, who is going to Paris next week for her anniversary trip; lucky gal!
We will be doing this once a month for the next 6 months; stay tuned for future topics...anyone in southern California can join the classes; there is still one open space.
