What are you main interests? conversation, lessons, social events, dining, etc?

Conversation, increasing my vocabulary, and honing in on proper grammar.

What level French do you have? What is your language background?

I consider myself to be an upper level beginner, but I may understand more than I give myself credit. I believe I'm lacking confidence. I've taken classes in high and college years ago, but I've recently been working with a tutor on Saturday afternoons. I'm hoping by opening my horizons and exposing myself to more situations where I can try to converse in Frech can only help my growth.

Have you ever lived or studied in a French-speaking country? Are you interested in: wine tasting, sports, literature, music?

I've never lived in a French-speaking country. I do have interets in wine tasting, cookings, sports, and travel.

Where in the Pittsburgh area are you most likely to come to meetings?

I live in the North Side of Pittsburgh. I'm flexible to travel most areas of the city.


My name is Ron Pontrelli. I'm not a native of Pittsburgh. I moved to Pittsburgh six years ago to attend Duquesne University's MBA program. I travel a lot and try to make it to France every year.
