French Language Classes

Friends of French Studies at LSU offers members French conversation classes at a very reasonable price payable directly to the instructor. Dates and times vary but usually correspond to winter, spring, and (sometimes) summer semesters at LSU.  An intermediate/advanced level class has been available for many years.  In 2021 a beginner/advanced beginner level class was added. 

Each semester as classes are being organized members are sent emails giving the details and contact information necessary for enrollment. 

Enrollment is open for Spring semester 2023 classes.
