Weekly Meeting for English-French Conversation and Fun!

  • This location is shown only to members

  • Hello Beautiful People :)

    Welcome to all! This is a new group that was just put together, and I'm very glad to see all faces, new and old!

    We will be meeting at The Bay Downtown, at the McGill Metro. We have had tremendous success there before, mostly because people like its convenience and its large area conducive to relatively quiet conversations. Here's what we do: we meet, we have English and French conversations with people, we play games to help us practise speaking and we have FUN :)

    We encourage practising with as many people as possible, and I make that possible by having people switch places every 15 minutes. This gives everyone a lot of exposure to people of different language skill sets, proven to be the best way to learn and improve. We have several games which stimulate conversations and help people become comfortable with each other. I also have a Scrabble game for those interested (please let me know).

    We also have members from Internations (another organisation) who also want to practise speaking. We also have several coaches who speak English and/or French very well and who will help participants practise speaking.

    This will start at 5:30pm, but please feel free to arrive whenever you can.

    The cafeteria closes at 5pm on Wednesdays, so if you like, please bring anything you like to eat or drink.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone there :)

    Bienvenue à tous :) Ceci est un groupe qui a été formé afin d'aider les gens à pratiquer le français et l'anglais sur une base régulière.

    On se rencontre tous les mercredis à La Baie au Centre-Ville au métro McGill. On y a eu beaucoup de succès parce que cet endoit est très convenable, et sa grande superficie est propice à la tranquilité et à l'apprentissage. Voici ce que l'on fait: on a des conversations avec d'autres personnes, on joue à des jeux afin de pratiquer le français et l'anglais, on fait des amis et on s'amuse :)

    On est souvent accompagné par des gens du groupe Internations qui veulent aussi pratiquer le français et l'anglais. On a des bénévoles/coachs également (dont moi!) pour aider les participants et pour répondre aux questions.

    On encourage pratiquer avec le plus de personnes possible, et on le fait en déplacant la moitié des personnes à toutes les 15 minutes. Ceci donne du "exposure" à des gens de différents niveaux, mots, accents, expressions,... qui est la meilleur façon d'apprendre et de s'améliorer. Nos jeux linguistiques stimulent les conversations, et rend les gens plus confortables les uns avec les autres.

    Ceci débute à 17:30, mais SVP arrivez lorsque vous pouvez. le resto est ouvert jusqu'à 20:00, mais les services de nourriture ferment à 17:00 les mercredis. Donc, vous pouvez emmener de quoi à manger ou boire avec vous.

    J'espère vous voir tous là :)

    Cheers
    Joe
