Are you interested in learning a foreign language while meeting new people, ordering delicious food, and drinking wine? Well, you've come to the right place! Madame Erin Foley, our French teacher, has many years of experience teaching conversational and AP French. We invite you to join us at Rochambeau every Friday at 6:00 PM for our "French Lesson Friday" series.

What to Expect?

As we explore a new topic, you'll learn the basics of navigating virtually any situation each week. You can attend the entire series or choose your favorite subject! Registration via Eventbrite is required as space is limited for our French Lesson Friday Series. Ticket holders will receive a complimentary glass of wine at the beginning of the class. A variety of food and beverages are available for purchase. We will begin with a meet and greet, followed by seated instruction. While in class, you can enjoy drinks, appetizers, or a full dinner.
