    December is here! Time for merry and caring, and making the most of 2020. Let's keep things festive and connected as best we can. 

    Workshops and classes continue through December and we've already begun to list courses for 2021. Next week, take a trip into Paris' past with an online discussion of  celebrated cocottes and courtesans of the 19th century – or stay in shape with our morning pilates or yoga classes from the comfort of your home. Expand your world while socially distancing with our online language courses. I mean, didn't Audrey Hepburn once say "Speaking Parisien is always a good idea"? Err, something like that! 

    Oh! Don't forget: WICE memberships and classes make wonderful tele-gifts. Register here >

Oh my gosh, did you see there's a chocolate making class? You definitely need to get back to Paris maintenant!

    Giving and giving back is so very rewarding, so why not give a special someone a WICE membership and/or a class!?? It’s a great way to not only give and there’s no need for wrapping paper or leaving the house for the post office.  Click here to register and give online >

    Remote learning is fun and you join your friends online for talks, classes, and lectures online. Stay connected and stay healthy with WICE!

    Well, here we are again, gang. Lockdowning. Yet, no worries because WICE is still here! Yippee!

    Make this time a cozy time by preparing delicious home cooked meals or even for others that you can drop-off! Chef Alisa Morov will test your skills creating fabulous French dishes. Nom nom.

    Then, converse with fellow WICE members and discover books together. Our Bilingual Book Group is a great way to stay connected. We're offering several wonderful reads including one of my favorite books,"Where the Crawdads Sing". Soooooo good. 

    Lastly,  stay flexible and active with us online. We have a couple of pilates and yoga courses. They're fun to take together and you can do them in the comfort of your own home... anywhere!

    You can view all our courses online here. See you in the virtual classroom!
