What we're about


This group welcomes ADULTS (from francophones to beginners) looking to put their French language CONVERSATION skills into action.

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

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. The meetings will be informal and oriented towards the initiative, creativity, curiosity and courage of the individual participants.

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

Our plan is to break into individual tables of FOUR people for French CONVERSATION. Half way through the evening two participants from each table are encouraged to move to a different table. Moving between tables reinvigorates the CONVERSATIONS. NOUS ÉVITONS D'AVOIR UNE GRANDE TABLE UNIQUE, CAR CELA CRÉE UNE AMBIANCE DOULOUREUSE ET INEFFICACE POUR LES PERSONNES QUI PARLENT LE FRANÇAIS MOINS FORT.


I know it is hard to participate with a new group for the first time. But... be assured, 'language' people are nice people! I know is is hard to find the time... but consider it as a gift to yourself! A two hour 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 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.
PS 3 There is no cost to become a member of this group. Our conversation meetings are free. When you sign up to this site, supplying a photograph, or supplying your surname, or supplying your formal first name, or supplying supplementary information is completely optional (En fait moi, je leur donne le moins d'informations possible. Mais ça c'est moi). I also limit the amount of email that I receive from MeetUp by editing the Email Notification Settings as follows:

What if I am just barely conversational? (
What will we talk about? (
What about the participation of adolescents/children? (
