Discover France And Its Culture: The Gironde Region

Season 23

After a long tour in Limousin, our next season will take you to Gironde. From the large pine forests of les Landes, to the historical city of Bordeaux,; from the resin harvesters and the shepherds on stilts to the priest who founded the Arcachon seaside resort; from the great vines of the Medoc area to the delicious local recipes, you will discover the stories and the History of the province.

Each conference lasts two hours. The program takes place on Fridays and Saturdays, Fridays in English, Saturdays in French.

The first conference of our twenty-third season will be held on Friday February the 24th at 6:00 pm.

The cost for a session of 5 conferences is $ 60. But you can in fact decide to take advantage of the bilingualism of our program to improve your French, or your English; and register, for the same price, to the full session of 10 conferences.

If you prefer to select specific conferences, the pricing is then $ 18 per conference, with still the option of attending the same conference in English and in French, with no increase of the price.
