Pack a bag lunch and join Alliance Française d’Omaha’s two-hour workshop on Saturday, July 21st at KANEKO.
If you want to speak like a real French person, you have to know the slang. There’s no way around it. Every culture has its own way of expressing itself—words, phrases and idioms that aren’t taught in the classroom. This workshop will teach you how the French do it. We’ll explore all aspects of slang, teach you how to be cool in French and tell you about the words you may want to avoid! Learn l’argot française!
Requirement: Must have taken French classes and know some French.
Instructor: Samuel Tepanossian is currently a Project Manager and Key Account Manager for the Canadian market at Travers Tool Company. A French-Armenian, Samuel moved to Omaha in the summer of 2017. He received his MBA from ICHEC, and before that was a graduate of Haute École de Lucia de Broukère, where he received a BA in Public relations. Samuel began his career in Brussels, where he specialized in Team Management and Human Resources at the European Institutions, eventually leading to a prominent position at Procter & Gamble where he later became a Brand Ambassador. In 2012 Samuel had the opportunity to move and live in the US. He worked in New York City for a home décor company as an e-Commerce Business Development Manager. Living in different countries has taught Samuel to enjoy meeting new people, trying new cuisines and exploring new cities.
