The West Hartford Groupe de French Monthly Meetup

Do you love French language and culture? Parlons francais ensemble.  We meet the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month at 7PM.

An interesting piece of news from France:

France's Journal Officiel proclaimed mot-dièse the official translation of "hashtag" on 23 January 2013. But what is a hashtag? It's one or more words preceded by the # symbol, which indicates a message's subject on social networks like Twitter: #frenchvocabulary.

If you know your French symbols, the official translation of "hashtag" might be a little confusing. Technically, un dièse is the sharp sign ♯ and is used primarily in music. But that's not the same thing as the # on your computer and phone that is used for hashtags; the correct name for this symbol is un croisillon in French. Nevertheless, dièse is commonly used in France, such as on the phone when an automated voice instructs, Tapez dièse - "Press the pound sign."


Bienvenue! et a bientot!

Please note: Some of us might not be there exactly at 7:00.  We often work late and do our best to get there.  If you don't see anyone, just sit in the back room and we will join you. 

Those of you needing directions to  Panera: Your GPS might send you on a less than desirable route. We Recommend I-84 to exit 43 (Park Rd/West Hartford Center).  Turn left at the end of the exit, then right at the second light. That will be South Main Street.  Stay on  Main Street all the way, pass through West Hartford Center, continue on to the next shopping center with Marshalls and Walgreens.  At the big interesection , turn left and you will immediately see Staples.  Panera is next to Staples. It's almost four miles from the exit.  It's easy if you go this way.
