Yes

Salut Everyone!

As an American, I truly think that it's a necessity to learn more than just our maternal language, which for most of us is English. It is truly an honor to have had French as part of my educational career for the past nine years, and I look forward to interacting with individuals who are just as passionate about the Francophone world.
