Perhaps one of the most-known romance languages, try your hand at speaking French in a group. All skill levels are welcome. Studies show that immersion into a language, even temporarily, can have cognitive, creative and social benefits that extend beyond the classroom and the French Club. Plus, being the only other language besides English that is taught in every country in the world, there’s a chance you’ll be able to use your skills almost anywhere you go.
