The French Language Exercise - Special Talent

PLEASE READ THE MEETUP DESCRIPTION BEFORE YOU RSVP YES! Please do the required homework to make sure you are maximizing this opportunity to practice French.

Every two weeks, we will set up "The French Language Exercise" meetup to allow all participants to practice their written and spoken French. All attendees are required to do some homework on the chosen topic: Special Talent.  This meetup will be mostly in French with some deviation in English to help with understanding if needed.

Please prepare a short introduction of yourself and anything you wish to share about your plans for Special Talent that you have.  Do you have any special talent or skills like how great you are as a cook, you can read 5 books per day, you are a singer/songwriter, an artist who wish to describe a certain artistic work, or if you have no special talent, speak of your worst talent or your wish to learn something new.  Please investigate any words or verbs that captures/describes your special talent.  Please try to time and practice your homework for a possible maximum speaking total time of 5 minutes.

Location:  Block 1912 at[masked] Avenue.

Because we are heading to a place of business, please be considerate to give them business as much as possible.

Time: 10:15am to 1145am.

Purpose: learn new vocabulary relating to seasons, outdoors, or vacations plans. Share anything you feel like sharing with fellow members. Use any verb tense you prefer for past or present or future.

Depending on the size of the group, each participants will be given a set number of minutes to present their prepared notes. This will be followed by either a roundtable discussion or 2 group person discussion after the individual presentations.

As I have explained to members who attended the meetup last Saturday, I am a tentative maybe.  I am putting this meetup to see if there are enough new french learners and experts who wish to meet up to acquire/discuss/assist fellow French speakers in improving their French with or without an organizer.

If you wish to step and be the host of this meetup, please let me know and I can update the info.

      Je pensais que nous venons de commencer à discuter avec n'importe qui. Donc, ça ressemble plus à présenter nos devoirs? Faut-il écrire au sujet de notre talent spécial? Je ne peux onle rester pour l'exercice en français et pas de chat français puisque j'ai un cours à partir de 13 dans la partie Nord.

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.
