Modern Foreign Languages Clubs

Conversation Hours

The fastest way to achieve fluency in another language is to speak it frequently. French Café Conversation is open to all Francophones on campus, meeting three to four times a month at different times of the day to accommodate students' schedules. Conversation is guided by French professors and driven by students' interests.
