What we're about
We are a Native French speaking family of educators who would like to share their passion for the French language and culture with other families in Austin. If you are French, speaking French or learning French (or planning to!) and/or having a child immersed in the language, we encourage you to join us for fun meetings and activities for your whole family.
If your children attend Ecole Jean-Jacques Rousseau, we are looking forward to get to know your child and you during our school events. Some of these events are scheduled during school hours, and others outside of school as social mixers and playdates. We publish all our school events on meetup.
We all know one must be socialized in a language for it to become or remain his/her own, so therefore the goal of the group is to provide a social environment that allows members (adults and children) to communicate socially in that language.
We would like a group that would promote friendship, family support, cultural understanding, and fun learning. Activities are widely diverse ranging from: children art classes, book clubs, conversation practice, movies showing, activities and playdates for the kids, outings and group travel, French cooking and cuisine, knitting and crocheting, French singing & music etc...As we speak other languages and proud to be from a multilingual upbringing, we welcome families from other backgrounds and ethnicity, speaking, but no limited to, Spanish and Arabic.
Welcome to the group!
