COUCOU TOUR DE FRANCE Exploring French Regions
SATURDAY MAY 22ND FROM 5 TO 7PM EST / 2 TO 4PM PST
Paris is undoubtedly one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, with over 30 million foreign visitors per year. But France expands way beyond its capital city, and many other French regions deserve to be at the top of traveler’s bucket lists !
Our beautiful country encompasses a variety of landscapes, emblematic foods, wine and cheeses, local celebrations and traditional costumes. You’d be surprised how distinct and instantly identifiable by French people even the local architecture can be!
As far as languages go, France is also home to a substantial number of regional dialects and patois, some of which have been in use for a lot longer than modern French. We will share with you some of the most famous phrases and vocab in these languages!
Since we won’t have time to cover all 13 regions of metropolitan France in depth, we will focus on 5 specific regions which we will explore through interactive quizzes and games:
* L’Île-de-France (Paris Region)
* La Bretagne (Brittany)
* Les Hauts-de-France (North)
* L’Occitanie (South)
* Le Grand Est (East)
Participants will also be invited to share their experience: if you visited any French region recently, bring your souvenirs, gather your pictures, brush up on your travel stories and come tell us all about it!
* This class will take place online via the video conference platform ZOOM *
Please note: our classes have limited capacity and often sell out fast, don't wait too long to book your spot!
