Speak FRENCH and WALK on the BEACH

Let's start off the weekend with a Walk on the Beach Boardwalk, a la Francaise!

That's right, we'll meet in Pacific Beach in front of the French Gourmet restaurant (960 Turquoise Street, 92109) at 9:30am this Saturday. We'll walk over to the Boardwalk and go south to the Lifeguard Station at Grand Avenue (the pelican statue). For our return, we will follow the beach back to the restaurant starting point. Please plan to park in the neighborhood close to the restaurant since the nearest public parking lot is four blocks away at Tourmaline Beach. 

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 beach/boardwalk (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 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.
