reminder - if you plan on attending - please contact me as we are not meeting at coffee tree. I will send you the address.
We are going to be meeting at a group member's home - I will email the address info to those attending. Merci!
This will be a repeating/regular meetup every Saturday from 10-12am. I will prepare handouts in advance I will mail to those who sign up. I will be posting materials on a couple of websites:
I will update the description and send out email prior to the day's session. The emphasis is on fun and learning. Who hasn't been tired with the same ol' classes where you learn the same ol' things?
The Saturday morning sessions are divided into beginning and intermediate classes but members are encouraged to come to both. I believe a mixed-level learning environment is advantageous for both levels.
Sessions will be about travel and practical phrases, grammar, and situations related to travel, culture and language (including vocabulary develpment, expressions, culture, and grammar).
These sessions will be cumulative, however you can jump in at any point. Bring your travel album, music and any materials as conversational props!
This session will be divided into 2 parts: Beginning Conversation for the First hour, then advanced beginning/intermediate for the second hour. I will structure the conversation around a virtual trip to Paris, then the rest of France in future sessions. I think language should be practical, so I will cover real-live conversational techniques as well as idiomatic expressions & Parisian culture.
