(York Region - French Language Conversation Opportunity - Plus de 500 séances de conversation depuis 2011 !!!)

■■ Lire ! Lire ! Lire !... en français... http://v.ht/ZYq4 ! (LIKE S.V.P. !) ■■

----------------------------------------------------

This Balanced/Spontaneous Conversation group welcomes ADULTS (from FRANCOPHONES... to beginners with some CONVERSATIONAL ABILITY) looking to put their French language CONVERSATION SKILLS into action.

Balanced Conversation = http://v.ht/JvLp
Spontaneous Conversation = http://v.ht/YFGF

The plan is to have a mix of Meetings 'IN PERSON Meetings' (FREE) and 'ONLINE' Meetings (a nominal fee).

(N’oubliez pas de soutenir notre café avec vos achats.)

PS For those whose French is NOT QUITE AT A CONVERSATIONAL LEVEL, Partagez has previously offered GUIDED FRENCH CONVERSATION sessions. I hope to re-introduce these sessions.

-----------------------------------------------------

Nos sessions seront informelles et dépendront de l'initiative, de la créativité et de la curiosité de chaque participant. The meetings are NOT FRENCH CLASSES, they are an opportunity for French conversation. In order to benefit, participants need to be able to hold at least a basic French conversation.

(Link for THOUGHTFUL ANONYMOUS FEEDBACK: http://v.ht/v6kY )

Nos membres sont merveilleusement disciplinés quand il s'agit de ne pas parler anglais.

Francophones and stronger speakers are encouraged to share their French language skills. Those needing a helping hand are encouraged to actively seek a helping hand.

Our plan (offline & online) is to break into individual subgroups of FOUR people for French CONVERSATION. I try to mix the subgroups periodically during the evenings. Mixing the subgroups reinvigorates the CONVERSATIONS. NOUS ÉVITONS D'AVOIR UNE GRANDE GROUPE UNIQUE, CAR CELA CRÉE UNE AMBIANCE DOULOUREUSE ET INEFFICACE POUR LES PERSONNES QUI PARLENT LE FRANÇAIS MOINS FORT.

----------------------------------------------------------

I know it is actually hard to participate in a new group for the first time... mais... les gens de langue sont des gens sympas ! Un nouveau membre m'a dit avec surprise... "Oh... vos membres sont tout à fait normaux !!" :) :)

I know is is hard to find the time... but consider it as a gift to yourself! A ninety minute gift that you surely deserve!

The number of people in York Region having interest in, knowledge of and good-will towards the French language has been impressive! Hopefully this MeetUp group can be a place to express and give value to all that interest and good will, while at the same time be a place where neighbours can get to know neighbours. I hope you will join us to share/celebrate/grow your French CONVERSATION, have fun, and meet great new people!

PS 1 Please RSVP for the meetings. It encourages others to come out.
PS 2 Please do not forget to support our café with your purchases.
