This Meetup Group has been formed to give those Francophiles and native French speakers particularly living east of the city an opportunity to get together on a regular basis for French conversation and social activities. There used to be a Meetup group in the area but it has not been active for some time. Anyone who is learning French, already fluent or is a native French speaker is welcome to join as we hope to cater for all levels of interest.
While it obviously suits those who are free Thursday morning, we will consider changing the time or conducting further groups at times to suit such as evening, afternoon or weekend if enough members requests are received.
The meetings are initially taking place at my home in an informal entertainment area setting as often in the past the noise and availability of suitable coffee shop venues made conversation difficult and parking was sometimes an issue. Light refreshments will be available.
When this venue is not available for any reason we will meet at a local café.
We hope to encourage French conversation, cultural awareness and social activities and opportunities for structured learning experiences if desired. This can also lead to more intensive language workshops in the future.
