Ashton Nicewonger teaches a course that will have participants feeling confident with basic conversation and reading in French. Learning, or maintaining, a foreign language can assist greatly in maintaining good mental health and connecting with others. By the end of the course, students will be able to introduce themselves, talk about their interests, order food, ask for assistance, talk about their families, and more! Prime members free, Standard members $50, Guests $65. 

In this course, we'll be going over the basics of French conversation for those who are new to the language or for those who need a refresher. We will talk about our likes and dislikes, families, careers, and hobbies to practice the basics of French grammar and vocabulary! Note that this course is limited to those who are not already able to carry a conversation in French, so that all participants come in with a similar level.
