French is not just the language of fashion, food and wine; it is the working language of a quarter of all Canadians and of dozens of countries around the world. In FLS 100, we explore the cultures of Quebec and France, while learning the language. We read and write easy French, and most importantly, we hear and speak the language in small groups.
