Business French 101 returns to AFLCR in January

Business French 101 is back by popular demand! The Alliance Française of the Lake Champlain Region is reintroducing its successful French “business basics” to address the ongoing need in Burlington to cater to the large clientele coming down from Montreal and the Québec Province. Business French 101 can not only provide you with the basic vocabulary to meet and greet the Québécois, but also the cultural savvy required when working with French-speaking customers. Topics include basic customer service expressions, navigating your business, the Marketplace and Downtown, Québécois-specific expressions and concerns, and other ideas to make your place of business more “French-friendly.”

Five weekly hour-long classes will run from January 10 to February 7 and cost $75 per student. Thursdays 12-1pm at 43 King Street, and 6-7pm at the Burlington City Police Department. Contact Micheline Tremblay at or sign up online at the AFLCR website starting mid-November. Space is limited for the noontime class, so sign up soon!
