What we're about

*** ACCEPTING NATIVE FRENCH and ENGLISH SPEAKERS ONLY ***

Note: To maintain a ratio of about 50 - 50 of native French and English speakers, the number of approvals for native English speakers may need to be limited.

Thanks to the Internet, the world has become a global village, and thus the importance of mastering a second language. This is why I have launched this Meetup Group, which will serve to unite native French with native English speakers so that each party can practice both languages on a 50-50 basis. Members of my two Phoenix (Arizona) - based Meetup Groups have been made aware of this new group, and several have already joined. I invite the local residence of Bordeaux (and elsewhere) to join this group to converse online with Americans, Canadians, and people of other nationalities, most of whom currently reside in the U.S. and Canada. Let's converse in both languages and find out what's going on in both parts of the world!

Important note: This group assumes at least an intermediary level of English / French. It is NOT intended for novices.

Grâce à l'Internet, le monde est devenu un village planétaire, donc c'est important de maîtriser une seconde langue. La langue de Shakespeare et de Molière sont parmi les langues les plus répandues et importantes sur cette planète. Voilà pourquoi j'ai lancé ce groupe Meetup, qui donnera les francophones et les anglophones l'occasion de pratiquer ces deux langues de manière équitable.

Avis important: Ce groupe est pour ceux qui ont atteint au moins un niveau intérmediaire d'anglais / français. Ce n'est pas pour débutants.
