Join Tin and learn a little bit of linguistics and history! Some believe that the omnipresence of English will eventually make the French language disappear. It might be true but do you know that more than a third of English words derive directly or indirectly from French? Let's learn how an integration of this magnitude happened.

- Apprendre l'histoire du français en Angleterre
- Découvrir pourquoi l'influence du français a été plus marquée dans certains domaines
- Découvrir l'origine française de certains mots anglais
- Améliorer sa capacité à converser à travers les discussions de groupe
- Amélorer sa compréhension aussi bien à l'écrit qu'à l'oral
