Beginning and Intermediate Classes will begin on Tuesday, January 26th and end on Tuesday, May 4th.

Classes will be taught by Salve Professor,  Dean de la Motte, Ph.D., Professor of French and Comparative Literature. Beginning and Intermediate Class size is limited to 25 students. The Salon- Advanced Conversation Group will be limited to 15. Classes will be taught via zoom. 

Andrew Snook, President of the Alliance Francaise of Newport welcomed the use of technology. “The use of zoom expands the opportunity to learn French to people outside our immediate area.  We already have some students from Fall River and even further afield; it promises to be a great group.”
