Spring is Immersion Day

Every Spring, AFN hosts an Immersion Day, which features activities and workshops conducted in French. Participants learn about the francophone world, play French games, eat French foods, taste French wines, and converse with each other solely in French.

Immersion Day is designed for speakers of French at all levels except beginner, and most presenters are native speakers. Thus, participants are truly immersed in French for an entire day.

Visit our calendar for more details on the next Immersion Day.
