Have you visited France or any other French-speaking country?

We have combined hiking and French by visiting the alps! We also discovered the "gites" in the French countryside, a good way to practice the language with lovely people. Favorite places: Dordogne Valley, Nice, Normandy Coast, and Brussels.

Where did you learn to speak French?

In college we spoke French in very small classes with native speakers. My work sometimes takes me to French speaking countries where I try to practice. When immersed in the language, I am struck by how quickly I improve.

How long have you been speaking French?

I majored in French in college in the late sixties. When I graduated I could discuss Balzac and Sartre but struggled with simple conversation. I have worked to stay functional in French and would like to improve. I am currently a little rusty...


A former director of admissions at a small college, I now work for the College Board. I love calligraphy, theatre, film, tennis, hiking, cross country skiing, and my husband of 36 years.

What Kris Z. is saying about this Meetup Group
