French as a Second Language for Youth

Youth Book Club!

In the past, we read books 1 to 3 of the Harry Potter series and each youth enjoyed a Harry Potter gift for completing the readings and attending the meetings. At our Youth Book Club, we read, discuss, and do activities related to the book all in French!

Next book is to be announced closer to the fall.
