Pardon my French but haven’t you always wanted to parler a little français? What better place to start than with the Alliance Française of Hawaii, the place to go for all things French in Hawaii? Allez, on y va!

Here’s a little information about our instructor: Severine Busquet grew up in France in different regions from “la Sologne” (about 2 hours drive South of Paris) where she visited many chateaux de La Loire during her childhood to “la Côte d’Azur” where she lived in Grasse, the capital of perfume near Cannes. She moved to Honolulu in 2005 and worked at the Hawaii Natural Energy Institute of the University of Hawaii for 14 years. She has been sharing her knowledge for few years now. She is a tutor as well as a substitute teacher at Punahou School, helping students in Science, Math, and French. Dynamic and adaptable French teacher, she is committed to second language acquisition to broaden awareness of other languages and cultures and to impart diversity. When she can, she gets in the forest or in the ocean enjoying the beautiful nature of the island.

The course is being offered online via Zoom that will allow students to interact with each other as well as the instructor from the comfort of their own homes. The weekly one-hour class will go by quickly as you learn to read, write, and speak French. Invite a friend to take the course with you and be your travel companion on your weekly trip to France with the Alliance Française!
