Bonjour! Comment ça va? Ciao! Va tutto bene?
Travelers to Italy and France or other countries where French is spoken, you might want to learn a few basic words in the local language. It will help you on your trip as you make your way around and speak to people, even if it’s just greetings and a few useful phrases. Maybe it is just my imagination, but it sure seems like Parisians are pleased when you greet them in French, or try to order in French. And I swear the service improves when you try to communicate in the local language!
Luckily, it’s not that hard to learn how to speak the basic French or Italian useful for travelers. We will guide you through this process, step by step.
In a relaxed, informal setting, using maps, menus, and other authentic materials, this class will help you to communicate in situations commonly encountered abroad. Small groups 3-8 people.
Get more out of your trip and travel with greater confidence.
