Esprit français is an initiative for all Valpo French students. Participation in the program is integrated into all French courses, providing great opportunities for French students to use the language on a regular basis outside class while building closer connections with native speakers and fellow French students in the program. En plus, c’est amusant!
Be sure to note the weekly goûter gathering to take place weekly in the Language Resource Center, ASB 240. Students of all levels are welcome to come and enjoy sweet and savory treats (baguette, cheese, Nutella) along with French conversation.
Our Valpo French calender includes activities organized by your French professors for Esprit français. Included also are activities sponsored by the Cercle français.
