French for Travelers at Cerro Coso

Cerro Coso Community College is offering a community education class French for Travelers covering the basics of what you need to know to make your travel to France a smooth sejour. France is a great place to visit, and Paris is one of the most visited cities in the world and that means you need to make reservations for everything.

Stephanie Loutas-Kapeles, a Ridgecrest resident, will teach participants how to plan properly for a trip to France; greet others in French; pass through passport control at the airport; navigate the Parisian metro system; purchase train and event tickets; give and receive basic instructions in French; make a hotel reservation; order food at a restaurant; make telephone calls from, to and within France; and use numbers 1 to 100 in French. The class will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays, September 17 through October 24, 2013 from 6 to 7 p.m. The cost for this community education class is $55 plus the cost of the book: Berlitz, French phrase book and dictionary.

This class is for you if you're thinking about taking your next holiday in France. From a sun filled family holiday to a romantic break, gourmet extravaganza or cultural excursion, you can find it all in France. A diverse and rich nation, filled with destinations to suit any taste, the French are a proud but friendly people. The key to enjoying your travels is to understand the cultural differences. The food in France is among the finest in the world, and it is the largest wine producing nation in the world.
