*Are you conversational in French; intermediate or advanced? Come join Nathalie, a native speaker, to improve your conversational French. Prior to each session, participants will receive by email brief videos or documentaries in French to watch, or news articles or literature to read, to prepare for the group discussion. This is a fun way to improve your fluency in French, and make new Francophile friends. This is not a structured class, the goal is really to practice talking in a relaxed setting.

*Southwestern Texas is known for wide open spaces, cattle ranches and even a well known National Park, but just outside the borders of Big Bend there are still many things to see in the Chihuahua Mountains and nearby. Summer rains bring life to the desert as flowers seem to pop out everywhere. In the hills and lowlands, wild animals of all sizes can be found. From mountain sheep to hummingbirds, big cats and wild javelina, there is much to see beyond Big Bend.
This program is available to our participants due to the wonderful generosity of Whitney Place. Thanks, Ellen and Whitney Place Staff!
