France has given many words to the English language, including "blond," "influx," and "quatrain"—all three of which form the cornerstone for your uncle's favorite joke. Use today's Groupon to thank France in its own language for its contributions to our culture, whatever the height of its brow: for $49, you get $100 worth of classes and membership at Alliance Française de Milwaukee. Along with your classes, you'll receive a membership to the illustrious idiom institute, and all the discounts and benefits that come with it ($20 value for student, $40 value for individual, $60 value for family, $30 value for French teacher). This Groupon does not apply toward private lessons, and course materials are not included.
Alliance Française de Milwaukee promotes the spread of French language and culture with a Rhone River's worth of classes for Escondeaux-enthusiasts and Nice-newcomers alike. Learn to soften your voice box in the one-hour pronunciation workshop for beginners ($20) before tackling the tongue-tangles and tonal traps of the French language in an accessible and introductory manner. Or use the brush-up beginner's course ($80) to reacquaint yourself with the basic French education that—much like your VHS copy of Armageddon —you haven't touched since high school. The Cabaret course ($20) uses song and wine to teach students the language of Piaf and Trenet, while the French for Travelers beginner's course ($80) gives globetrotters a grasp of basic modern Frankish dialogue and questions, such as "Where is the bathroom?" and "I understood everything you said about me to that other waiter." Other courses are available, including 10-week tutorials ($235–$280) and children's courses ($170). Check out Alliance Française de Milwaukee's policies before scheduling your class.
With year-round cultural events and classes, Alliance Française de Milwaukee offers ample opportunities for those looking to brush up on languages that are spoken more widely than the one known only to one's identical twin. Classes are offered during the day, at night, and on weekends, allowing even the busiest of bees and buffaloes to sample the sweet nectar that is the French language. Call ahead to reserve your spot in a class.
New students only; current members who have not taken a language course can put the value of the Groupon toward classes. Students who plan to take a course other than "Beginner I" need to take the placement test. This Groupon is not valid with other offers.
Alliance Française de Milwaukee
French, of course, for French Alliance of Milwaukee, Alliance Française de Milwaukee transplants the culture and language of the French-speaking world to the city's Lake Michigan shores. Several teachers help students learn the smooth, mellifluous language even if they weren't born with a Frenchman's velvet tongue, and a variety of events commemorate French history, from the joyous summer hours of Bastille Day to the annual release of the beaujolais nouveau wine each fall.
