Sunday at 5pm: “Quel serait l’avenir de l’humanité si… (What would be the future of Humanity if…)” by the author Carmen Froment

Carmen can answer your questions, discuss various issues presented in the book and autographed copy of the book. In this book, the authors discuss many topics such as education, politics, the economy, the role of women, art, etc. Topics that affect all of us to one degree or another regardless of the environment in which we operate. These topics are presented in the light of Sages and Initiates who are inspired by the universal wisdom.

Sunday at 6:30pm: ” Language development in bilingual children” by the author and trained linguist Annie Bourret

Annie Bourret will present an outline of bilingual language development and will answer your questions. Should I expose my child to two languages from birth? Is it normal that my young child “mixes” French and English? I don’t speak French. How can I help my child to learn French? (Yes, you can!)

Monday October 21 at 6:30 « Les expressions idiomatiques françaises (French Idioms) » presented by professeur Edmond Rivère :

«J’ai la boule à zéro. » The time has come to update the wealth of current common idiomatic expressions! Edmond Rivère is so passionate about these expressions, that he has just spent 2 years interviewing French people from all walks of life to discover the modern-day idioms.  Join him on his discovery of the figurative language, sometimes with comical expressions, sometimes with serious undertones.
