What we're about

Chers amis

Please read carefully before you join

Our website is a hub that centralizes many French cultural and artistic opportunities.
One of my strong beliefs is that being rich of many cultures is a blessing.
We will strive to bring together the best of two cultures and that is why the best of American good manners and the best of American French good manners must be one of our rules of conduct. Answering emails from members promptly and un-registering from events even if at the last minute are a must

Our group is open to lovers of French Language and French culture but embraces the values of Democracy.

In addition we would like you as a member to feel at home and part of a big warm, civilized family and that is why Racists, haters, Right wing extremists, New Republicans, Stalinist either French or Americans or from any Nationality and their supporters are NOT WELCOME. We will raise a red flag through Email each time modern Democracies values created by the American Revolution and the French Revolution are attacked by extremists.The Reality is that Rupert Murdoch's Fox Empire has become the sponsor of Domestic criminals such as Sarah Palin and Bill O'Reilly. In addition recently he has become a criminal in England after his companies hacked phones including the phone of a Kidnapped girl and the phone of the previous prime minister. Rupert Murdoch has the dubious distinction of being one of the very few leaders who successfully bribed Scotland Yard the legendary English police force

On the fun side, We will on a regular basis update you on pleasant Francophone events mostly in the Los Angeles region. In addition our Franco American events are extremely successful, in a very relaxed ambience and with very, very nice people.
Our website is very open to welcoming all level of French as long as you have a desire to improve your knowledge of the French culture and the French language.

We are cooperating with most French institutions and most French groups in order to select for you the Best of the Best in French culture and French events. We however are open to all events and all cultures that involve ethical, intelligent people.

This French-Language-Friends Meetup will be a center that showcases great French opportunities around the French language with an emphasis on French arts..
We are looking to help create a great Future by building a group where the best of the French spirit and culture as well as the best of the American spirit and culture are put together for a richer and successful life as well as of course having a lot of fun which is part of the " Art de vivre".
As a courtesy to all members a picture is mandatory, members without a picture will be deleted.
You will not be accepted at our events if you are not Registered on this website.
If you register for our events and fail to show up three times you will be deleted from our Meetup group

Amicalement votre
Eric Lafayette
PS Must know quotes:

Here are three quotes that symbolize my Philosophy:

"We will have to repent in this generation not merely
for the vitriolic words and actions of the bad people,
but for the appalling silence of the good people."
- Martin Luther King- human rights activist

”The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.”
Albert Einstein - Peace activist

"Being the recipient of two Cultures is ten times better than having one culture, being the recipient of many cultures is one hundred times better than having one culture."
Eric Lafayette
