About this Class

Vous or tu?Argent or tunes? Fou or ouf ? From formal French to argot and verlan, have fun discovering the many facets of the French language.

Out from under the nose of the venerable Académie française comes a new French language: the product of francophone voices, sounds from the suburbs of cities, and transient peoples. Where did this language come from?  Who speaks in what way? This class, which is intended for students with a B1/B2 level, will try to answer some of these questions while exposing you to the different registers and nuances of the French language. You will learn how and when to use formal vs. informal expressions in context, then build up your arsenal of argot and verlan in role play!
