What we're about

Bonjour tout le monde!

*We will be online for the duration of the the crisis. Anyone anywhere desiring to learn French may join us online using zoom.us webinar software Go to the website to install what you need. You will also need to rsvp on this site (so I know you’re attending) and click on the zoom link for a particular session at the time the session begins C’est tout. À bientôt! Je vous verrai en ligne.

The Pittsburgh French Meetup Group (http://www.meetup.com/FrenchLessons/) is one of the largest francophone groups in the Pittsburgh area. I started this group about 15 years ago as a way to help friends learn French. We host several classes - beginner - intermediate - and advanced - for which there is a small fee to attend.

We meet most weeks at various locations in Pittsburgh for fun, conversation, & exchange of ideas. These events are free for the most part. You are encouraged to be active and to suggest events and places - I can post them on the site.

Note: We ask that members fill out their profile so we know who you are. This helps members in getting to know each other - and discourages anonymous accounts for the use of spam, etc. Also: you need to add a picture of yourself before I can add you to the meetup.
