I'm in the "forgot a lot since college" boat as well, and haven't attended any meetings because of that, but would love to come if I knew I wouldn't be the only nonfluent one.

I concur. My French is not great. I would love to practice with others!  I just need to meet on an evening.

Jenna, I am in your boat.  I have attended a meet-up before and found everyone to be extremely nice and helpful, but many of them could chatter away in French while I had to keep asking people to slow down and it felt like I frustrated a few people with my inability to keep up.  Perhaps have some meet-ups for those who are fluent and others for those of us who are a bit rusty?

Salut!

Is everyone on this list at a similar level? I didn't make it to any of the meeting before and it seemed a little advanced for me...is anybody at a more "took it in hs and a little in college but forgot a lot" level?

Merci!

I'm interested but getting out to Portland on a weeknight can be hard when you have to get up by 5 am. -Judy Rizk

Salut tout le monde!

Some of you probably saw that Nancy is no longer going to be the official organizer for the group and that she has paid for us to stay on the meet up website until December.

I offered to be the new organizer but I'm not interested in paying for the fees associated with keeping the group in the site. Unless somebody wants to take completely over in this way, I would like to suggest an email-based communication (or maybe even a facebook group?) to organize future meet ups.

If you think you would be interested in this, please let me know and I will add you to my list.  Likewise, if you are interested in running the site, contact Nancy!

One of my ideas is to vary the day of the week the group meets and maybe up the frequency, this way if you can't make it one day you don't have to wait a whole month to get your French practice in :)  But that's just an idea for now...still trying to figure out the organization piece first!

Feel free to let me know your thoughts on a switch of this nature...

merci :)
Andi
