La Promenade

(en français ci-après)

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

We'll meet at the Japanese Tea Pavilion in Balboa Park, just in front of the Organ Pavillion at 9:30am this Saturday. (You can park behind the Organ Pavilion, then follow the sidewalk to the entrance.  The Tea Pavilion will be just next to it.)  The route will be described on the day of the walk.  It will change for each Saturday in December but will be in Balboa Park for most of the month of December.

The main focus is to speak French, meet new people, and enjoy 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.

We will wait about 10 min. before leaving for the walk.

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.

Commençons le weekend en marchant Balboa Park, à la française.

On va se rencontrer au Japanese Tea Pavilion à Balboa Park, juste devant l'Organ Pavilion at 9h30 ce samedi.  (Vous pouvez stationner votre voiture derrière l'Organ Pavilion. Ensuite suivez le trottoir pour aller à l'entrée de l'Organ Pavilion.  Le Japanese Tea Pavilion est juste à côté.)  On vous expliquera le trajet le jour de la promenade.  Le trajet changera chaque samedi en décembre mais sera à Balboa Park pour la plupart du mois.

Le but est de parler français, rencontrer d'autres gens, et passer du temps au parc le matin.  On va parler français pour la plupart, donc c'est pour ceux qui ont une connaissance moyenne ou avancée de la langue française.  Si vous apprenez le français et vous voulez écouter, no prob.

On attendra dix minutes avant de commencer.

(PS - Si vous ne répondez pas on ne pourra pas vous avertir s'il y a des changements de lieu ou de temps.)

Ce meetup est gratuit grâce à la générosité de Sophie Juster, prof de français de Paris.  Veuiilez voir son site à  Les frais de leçons commencent à 9,99$ de l'heure.

    Due to my own scheduling error, I will not be able to walk today. J'aime Balboa Park - je suis très triste et désolé.

    December Nights begins at noon on Saturday, the earliest. I don't foresee a conflict. We'll be there at 9:30. The crowd mostly arrives in mid-afternoon.
