1st place: Julia DeCelles-Zwerneman (pictured in center), “Une belle catastrophe: le problème de la rivière Citarum” (instructor, Karen James)

Pause-Café at La Maison Française is fun and très agréable!  Once a week students gather at La Maison 1404 Jefferson Park Avenue to meet new and old friends and speak French in a casual setting while enjoying coffee and snacks. (Photo by Jessie Labadie)
