French Grammar Excercise - Discussion Meeting in English

Hello EFL members...

I received more than 25 responses for my inquiry to start a French grammar exercise group with varying availability. However, for the most part, about 10 members stated that they are available on Thursday afternoon/early evening.

I was going to email everyone my ideas but I realized that managing emails can be a challenge. Hence, I have booked a meetup to discuss ideas how we can make this ideas put into action. i have my own ideas and would like to present them to those who are interested in this type of French meetup. I would also like to hear your ideas on how to proceed.

We shall meet at Block 1912, but I really don't know the traffic the cafe gets on weeknights. So hopefully we can get a table with enough seats for everyone. I finish work at 5pm and so I can be there as early as 5:30pm. If anyone can arrive sooner, please do and let me know.  This meetup will be entirely in English.

After we meet, I hope we would have a solid plan on how to proceed and book future meetups. For those who couldn't make it, you can certainly post your ideas on this meetup or email it to me.

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

    Hi, I am stuck at work. I have all of the materials that I used for my French training with the federal government- from A to C level. I was also thinking that we could take turns to create a "lesson" based on practicing a particular grammar point. That way the burden is shared and sometimes one learns more from teaching/leading than being the student!

      Hey Tana, the group discussion resulted in a different direction away from a text book so no need to scan or photocopy. there was no plan for anyone to take a lead so that anyone can just drop in and get something out of the exercise when they can join. We shall see if it works in the next few weeks.

    I wanted to come so badly but need to drive my son to and from work this evening, so I will miss this one. Looking so forward to meeting with you all and sharpening my French communication skills. I really enjoy Block 1912 too. Great choice :)
