This is weekly word-of mouth group that's been around since at least 1988. There is no organizer, theme, or teacher.

You don’t have to speak fluent French, but our members do have at least a little bit of French and, importantly, a willingness to use the French they have and to make mistakes. It’s okay to be a beginner as long as you don’t expect to find “free tutoring” or “free French lessons"with "free teachers." You can (and will over time) learn by immersion, but please remember that this is a short time slot in everyone's week for us to use our French and escape from the English-speaking world for a bit.

Les francophones des villes jumelles se réunissent le samedi, toutes les semaines, pour parler avec les amis en français autour d'un café.

Ce groupe n'est pas à l'origine un groupe Meetup -- il est fondé par la bouche à l'oreille avec l'aide de l'Alliance Française, l'Université de Minnesota, et les membres fidèles.

Je l'affiche sur Meetup pour le donner plus de visibilité "virtuelle."

Tous les âges sont les bienvenus, tous les niveaux de français se parlent (oui, même les débutants). Nous avons aussi de gens qui parlent couramment -- les étudiants sérieux, les profs de français, et même pas mal de membres qui sont francophones de naissance!

Toutes les semaines, on acueille de nouvelles personnes, mais le coeur du group sont les habitués qui viennent depuis des années et se voient à l'extérieur du groupe aussi.

Pas nécessaire de venir toutes les semaines, venez quand vous pouvez, nous sommes d'habitude une trentaine au moins!

We're 1,151 Francophones et Francophiles
