Speak FRENCH and WALK in the Park

Let's start off the holiday weekend with a Walk in Balboa Park , a la Francaise!

That's right, we'll meet at the entrance to the San Diego Zoo (2929 Zoo Drive, 92101) at 9:30am this Saturday. We'll decide between two possible promenades inside the park (not the zoo) with a short stop for a coffee/drink/snack at the Tea Pavillion (2215 Pan American Way, 92101). Public parking can be found next to the zoo.

The main focus is to speak French, meet new people, and enjoy the park 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 must be leashed and under the control of their owner at all times throughout the park including the trails and canyons. Of course, pick up after your pet too.

We will wait about 10 min. before leaving for the walk. So you can catch up with us if you are not too 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.
