La confiote. Qu’est-ce que c’est? Pour certains, ce mot familier évoque simplement de la confiture.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
