What we're about

This is a group aiming to provide frequent in-person meetings for international women who have moved to the Burlington County area.

The purpose of this group is to provide opportunities for English conversation in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. 

All skill levels are welcome. 

Americans with an interest in learning about other cultures and who are willing to help English learners improve their English are welcome to join. 

Schedule of recurring Events:
Every first Saturday of a month, international friends of the IWFG meet online at 9 - 10:30 a.m..
Every second (or third) Monday of a month, we meet at 4 - 6:00 p.m. in-person.
Every last Monday of a month, our Book Club meets at 5 - 7 p.m.

I started to organize this group in the summer of 2019, because I enjoyed a similar group (after I moved from Germany to NJ in 2009) until the group organizer retired, and the group stopped meeting. I enjoyed those monthly meetings a lot, made friends, and improved my English skills. Members of the group shared experiences about living in the USA, learned about different cultures, and most importantly, made friends. 
After you have attended one of our gatherings, you might wish to join our closed Facebook group for more events, social and learning activities.

Important: 
NEVER SHARE OUR ZOOM LINK, 
as you are probably aware, sharing the link publicly creates a security risk. Keep in mind "public" includes our Meetup group page, because this page is open to the public. 
Some women were not able to locate the group emails including the Zoom links in the past. A very common reason for that was that the notification settings within their Meetup accounts were set OFF. Please make sure your settings for email notifications are ON:

Please understand that we cannot assist you with technical issues you might encounter. If you have not received the Zoom link prior to an event (at least 5 hours before it takes place), you may want to contact Meetup directly for support:

Thanks for your interest in joining our group! We look forward to meeting you:)
