French Tutoring

Regular Tutoring Hours:

Tuesdays 3-5pm via Zoom with Emeline. Don’t worry if you get a “waiting room” message: the tutor is likely with another student.

Wednesdays in Schmitt 241R: 12:30-1:15 in person with Sarah

Tutoring is also available for French and other subjects at CAST.

Conversation Hour

Wednesdays from 1:30-2:30 in the Schmitt 2nd floor atrium. With snacks!


Try your hand at translating a poem (from French into English, Spanish or Haitian Kreyòl) or recording a reading at our “Phares haïtiens: 19th-Century Haitian Luminaries in Translation” repository!

Free French Books!

Check out the “little library” of free French books in the second floor atrium of Schmitt. Feel free to take books home, to share with friends, or to add your own materials.
