We’re a bilingual Toastmasters Club that speaks French and English. The club is geared for those who wish to develop their public speaking skills and who also:
-Speak French as their native language
-Speak French as a second language
-Are learning French or want to maintain French learned in school
Meetings begin at 7:00 pm and follow the standard Toastmasters structure—prepared speeches, evaluations, Table Topics, and more. Being a bilingual club, we’ll have a French grammarian as well as an English grammarian.
Our goal is to conduct half the meeting in French and half in English. It’s a great way for language learners to practice their French and for native speakers to hone their English.
We meet on the 34th floor of The Breakers at Edgewater Beach, 5333 N. Sheridan Road, just north of Foster in Chicago. The cost is $10 for the meeting (with refreshments). Validated parking in the Breakers building is $5 (for any time beyond 2 hours, up to 3 hours) Take a ticket upon entering the garage and have it validated at the reception desk after the meeting. When exiting, scan the validated ticket at the gate, then insert a credit card. (Credit card only, no cash accepted.)
