FREQUENTLY-ASKED QUESTIONS

Q1: Can I come even if I don't know how to speak French?
Everyone is welcome. You will enjoy a better experience if you are able to carry a basic French conversation, as you will be engaged with the other participants. One of the more advanced French speakers, the Event Host or the Meeutp Group Organizer will gladly assist you with vocabulary if you are struggling with certain words. Please note that this Event is not a structured class and we are not here to teach the language; rather, we help you practice it.

Q2: Can I come to your events if I am not a member of the Group?

As this group is Public, anyone could attend. However, certain events are reserved for registered group members and their guests. You can join some of these events if you are accompanied by a Group member.

Also, it is recommended to register with the Group. as it gives an Event Host an estimate of the amount of participants that will attend a Meetup, and whether or not an event will occur.

Q3: Where can I learn French in Halifax?
Check out Alliance Française Halifax (http://www.afhalifax.ca (http://www.afhalifax.ca/)) or Université Sainte-Anne (http://www.usainteanne.ca (http://www.usainteanne.ca/)). Both are excellent resources to learn French in this city.

Q4: What is the skill level of all speakers?
Participants at this Meetup have varied skill sets. They vary from those who just started taking French classes, to increasingly advanced speakers, and those for whom French is their mother tongue. Having said that, we recommend that beginners attend the Conversation au My Dream Cheesecake Meetup for its quieter settings.

Q5: Where can I get French books?
The Halifax Public Library has a selection of French language books at their branches. Amazon also offers a certain selection of books in French.

Furthermore, Renaud-Bray (http://www.renaud-bray.com (http://www.renaud-bray.com/)), a Québec-based bookstore, offers free standard shipping through Canada Post for all orders of $39.00 or more (before taxes) to all locations in Canada.
