About this learning opportunity

Enjoy un bon café et de la bonne conversation with colleagues on select Saturday mornings in the heart of Edmonton’s French Quarter.

These casual gatherings are facilitated by a host to ensure that the conversation en français flows comfortably and that everyone is included, no matter your level of French proficiency or confidence. Café et délices sont inclus!
