French Language Exercise - Topic of Your Choice

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.

The French Language Exercise is a meetup to give participants the opportunity to write, read and discuss in French on any topic of your choice. It is scheduled every 2 weeks at same day/time/location.

Homework: Prepare a written work in French on any topic of your choice.   Please time yourself for a possible reading time of no more than 5 minutes including a quick introduction of who you are.

Topic ideas/Suggestions: Here are some of the topics we have chosen in the past:  Travel Experience/Plan, Current News, Book/Film Review,  Favorite Food/Restaurant and Anything You Want To Share about Yourself and Family which is a great ice-breaker.

Language of the Meetup: This meetup will be mostly in French with some deviation in English to help with understanding if needed.

Instruction: Because there is no Event Host, everyone must help with starting the meetup on time and timekeeping to ensure that everyone gets a chance to participate.  Each participant is given 10 minutes:  5 minutes to read your written work and the next 5 minutes for others who may ask questions to generate a French discussion. If there is still time left at the end, members can partner with one other member to do 1 on 1 private chat in French to discuss/ask any other questions on their written work.

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

RSVP:  Please be considerate.  If you say you are attending, please make the effort to do the homework and reserve this time to attend and participate for the benefit of yourself and others.  If you are not able to attend, please change your RSVP immediately.

Group Size:  This meetup has proven to be good when it is small around 8 people. If the attendance is around the 12 person mark, it is recommended to divide to two different tables and ensure that everyone gets a chance to practice their French.  Group size is set to a maximum of 16 participants for a possible of two-three groups.

Event host: If you wish to step up and be the host of this or upcoming meetups, please let me know and I can update the event host information.

    J'étais là environ 11 mais je n'ai vu personne parler français, seul un groupe jouer à un jeu en anglais. J'ai demandé au café s'ils ont vu un groupe de parler français et ils ont dit non alors je suis parti.

      Aussi, j'étais inquiet à ce sujet car il est un change de description de cette meetup... Peut-etre, s'il vous plait, annoncer dans ce meetup que vous allez jouer le jeu au lieu de la rédaction d'un sujet de discussion... une idee!

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.
