What we're about

If you are a Francophone or Francophile who can understand the French language, come visit our Francophone Bilingual Toastmasters club in Chicago. We are the first, and as far as we know, the only French-English Toastmasters International club in the Midwest!

You will be warmly welcomed with a scrumptious dinner in a lovely dining room overlooking Lake Michigan with an amazing view. We socialize in both English and French before beginning our Educational Session. We truly enjoy having visitors and are always happy to meet new people.

The additional benefits offered by following the Toastmasters’ program provides structure to our meetings. Should you join our club, you will progress in the program at the pace you choose. You will always be supported by your personal mentor and club members who will help you improve your communication and leadership skills.

Come visit our club, and don’t worry, you will not be asked to give a speech on your first visit!

Please arrive between 6:45 and 7 pm as we dine before the educational section of our meeting. The cost is $10 per person which covers parking, dinner and our room rental fees, payable at the meeting.
