About Us

Learn a new language or increase your fluency by joining one of our conversational classes or our French Explore Program. Our experienced instructors and small class sizes create a welcoming and supportive learning environment. Classes are non-degree and open to anyone 16 years and older, unless otherwise specified.

Summer 2021 Classes

Summer classes will run for 8 weeks, from July 8 until August 26 unless otherwise indicated. In line with the University of Saskatchewan's guidelines to protect our community, our classes will all be offered online. Classes are delivered live/synchronously and you will receive the online meeting information the day before the start of class. Enrolment is limited to 8 students to keep class sizes small, and we take registrations up to the second class if the class is not full.

"I really appreciate the format of the online French class I am taking.
The instructor is fantastic and since I struggle with hearing loss I am able to
hear the instructor so much better than I could with in-person classes."
-Fall 2020 student

"I just wanted to say thank you for adjusting to the online classes.
We love classes with madame Helena. Helena is the first French teacher
who really inspired me to study français!"

"I am thoroughly enjoying my German language class.
It is very interactive, and François is patient and encouraging,
which makes learning a second language a lot of fun!"
