A story

On a French-speaking planet, an Intergalactic agency staffed by humans and aliens defrosts Victor Hugo to act as a guide to Francophone culture and life. But first, Victor must bring mustard from Earth in order to avoid a bloody revolution.

Learning French isn't simply learning a list of words or a set of rules - language is also culture. For each one of our language courses, we offer a setting that includes diverse characters and personalities, various accents, professional and personal situations, all with a touch of humor.
