Lots of fun French conversation (maybe a little English), knowledge of French culture and vocabulary, and people who have interests similar to mine.
Book: Just Like Heaven Movie: Amelie Music: anything Francis Cabrel, JP Nataf, Carla Bruni, Keren Ann ( can't think of any specific songs at the moment)
Intermediate, but quite rusty in terms of verb tenses & vocabulary
I love speaking French and all things Francais. I'm so excited to have the opportunity to speak French with others on an ongoing basis!
I had a great time talking to everyone in this group. People were very open, friendly, and quite interested and knowledgeable about the arts, culture, literature, and film. There was definite flexibility on the "only speaking in French" thing, which was a good thing as it was my first meetup, and my first time speaking French in a while. There was also a good range of capabilities in terms of speaking French. I loved being able to listen to the advanced French-speakers and remember vocab & verbs. And everyone was very helpful in answering my questions! Comment dit-on "attend"? Comment dit-on "depressing"?. . . :) But I will definitely bring my dictionary next time. . .
