What we're about

Hi! This group is for people who want to speak/practice French, learn more about French culture here in Calgary, and connect with other people who want to do the same. Whether you are a native French speaker, or someone who is just learning, you are welcome to join this group!

Events will be based around:

- Learning more about French culture in Calgary
- Speaking/practicing French in a fun & open environment.
- Movie nights, going to different French restaurants, and other evening festivities
- Putting a "French Twist" on regular activities (i.e tour of the city conducted in French instead of English)

See you soon!

Upcoming events (4+)

French & Coffee with the Calgary Language Nerds!

Waves Coffee House - Shelbourne

EVENT DESCRIPTION
Join us at Waves Coffee House to practice French! This is a warm & friendly atmosphere for all levels of French students to improve upon their fluency level. Upon arrival, you will be broken into three groups:

• Absolute beginners: you can barely communicate in French
• Upper beginners: you can communicate in French at a basic level, but are lacking speaking practice
• Intermediate and advanced: you can communicate with a reasonable degree of ease in French and simply want to converse with others to maintain your level.

I will spend the first 15 minutes or so with the intermediate speakers to get you set up and get the conversation going. I'll spend the remaining hour of my time with the absolute beginners and upper beginners to help you improve your French level. We'll play fun games and do engaging activities, many of which I've invented myself based on my experiences teaching and learning languages, all with the goal of helping you progress consistently in French.

WHO CAN ATTEND
Anyone who speaks or is learning French. Please note that you must RSVP in order to attend. If you RSVP "attending" and are unable to attend anymore, change your RSVP to "not attending." Events are cancelled if nobody has signed up.

COST TO JOIN
• $2 to me to go toward my costs of hosting the event (monthly meetup fees that I pay, designing and purchasing games, gas to drive to the coffee shop, etc). You may bring cash, send me an e-transfer, or pay by credit card or PayPal at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/polyglotazren.
and
• A drink or food purchase from the coffee shop

HOW TO FIND US
We will be sitting in the back of the coffee shop near the barber shop next door.
