Speak FRENCH and WALK in the Park

  • Apr 13, 2013 · 9:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Let's start off the weekend with a Walk in Florida Canyon, a la Francaise!

That's right, we'll meet at Balboa Park at 9:30 am this Saturday. We'll walk over to Florida Canyon for a short hike and return to pick up a coffee/drink at Babycakes next to the Balboa Tennis Club. We will return to the start point to finish our drinks and do a potluck picnic on the grass (an option). Please bring chairs and ground tarps if the weather is good.

The main focus is to speak French, meet new people, and enjoy the beach in the morning. We will mostly be speaking in French, so this is for average to advanced speakers. But if you are learning and want to listen in, pas de probleme.

Wearing your French beret, French maid outfit, and bringing a bucket of French fries is highly recommended, but absolutely optional. :D

Though, please note, dogs are not allowed at the park (even if you carry it).
They even asked me to leave because they thought I was a...'St. Bernard.'

We will wait about 10 min. before leaving for the walk. So you can catch up with us on the plant walk if you are late.

PS - If you don't RSVP you won't be able get last minute notices as in cancellations, time/location changes, etc...)


This meetup is always free of charge and generously sponsored by Sophie Juster, a certified french teacher from Paris. Check out her site at The rates for the lessons start at $9.99/hr.
