    Truly interactive approach to topics discussed. Enjoyed the event. Jeremy, thanks for organizing it. Really enjoyed the after conversation too with few members of the group.

    Joe, it's a free event. If you're not great at debating, and want to come and learn, you're more than welcome.

    Hey Everyone!

    The possible topics for August's meetup are:
    Abortion - should it be legal at all?
    Juvenile criminals - should they ever be treated as adults?
    Genetically modified foods - should they be allowed in our supermarkets and on our plates?
    Nuclear power - after what happened in Japan, should use nuclear power at all?

    If you have any others you'd like to debate this month, feel free to post them.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.

Rafaël, started French Conversation Group
