Online COURSES and GROUPS


Here at WICE, the team is working to try and move as many of our courses as possible online to try and provide continuity to our members here in Paris during the current lock-down period. We are also planning to run a number. The language courses are leading the charge online but we are endeavouring to get as much content and as many of our members learning and interacting online as possible.

Stand by to check this page over the coming days as we provide updates on when these online events will take place.
