French Instructor: Connie Lewis Larson

Connie LarsonWhat’s my role at RCTC?

Je suis prof de français et je suis à votre service! Although new to RCTC, I am not new to Minnesota. My teaching career began here and I have now come full circle, via Idaho, France, and Texas. Time to plant roots and encourage others to spread their wings…visiting francophone communities all over the world.

This website is a community resource for all interested in learning French. Check out the links to the left of this page: language learning tools, course information, and community connections are just a click away. If you speak French and are interested in tutoring, volunteering in the classroom, or participating in French conversation, please contact me!

Our French program is growing, so visit our site often for updates in course offerings, study abroad opportunities, and community events.

Vive le français!
