What we're about

Bonjour tout le monde! If you took French in high school and want to be able to speak that language with other francophones or if your French is rusty and you just want to speak French with native speakers then this is your group. This group only meets for two hours on Saturday mornings from 11:00am-12:00pm. Even during the pandemic times we do meet up at a physical location which is mostly likely to be at Migration Brewing because they have outdoor seating.

I have a Masters of Arts Degree in French Studies and I have visited Paris and Toulouse in France. I also offer Beginners, Intermediate as well as Advanced French lessons to those that are serious and want to continue learning the French Language. I’ll bring the learning materials, you just bring yourself and a good attitude. There will be a set topic for each lesson that we can talk about in French. Some Saturdays I may bring in a song and we can all go over the lyrics. This is learning process so don’t worry there won’t be any tests. I am very passionate about teaching the French Language since I do teach the language online. It’s not going to be easy but it will be worth it when you find that after some time you can have a small conversation with other francophones. I hope to see you there! Merci beaucoup!

Here is a video that was taken by one of my group members (Thank you Benjamin!).

English words that come from France! Quoi?!

Nova Coffee

Bonjour tout le monde! My name is Mary and I am the organizer of the French conversation group. Are you looking for an opportunity to speak French with other francophones? Tired of learning French by only using Duolingo? Rejoignez-nous pour une tasse de café. This event is for a small group of 3 people and it is first come first serve.

Today’s theme of discussion is French words and phrases hidden in English words such as “vinegar” = vin aigre, “curfew” = couvre feu, “dandelion” = dent de lion, “porcupine” = porc épine and so forth. How many of the English words did you already know that originated from France?

I found a video on YouTube you might like!

I will also bring a sheet which shows the words that we discussed today. Beginners are always welcome. Speak as much French as you can. :)

Bonjour tout le monde!

I am offering French lessons for those who took French in high school and want to keep learning French, those who plan on taking the DELF/DALF or TEF/TEF Quebec, or for people who have a serious interest in French culture. The price is $25.00. I accept the following payment forms: check, Venmo and PayPal. I prefer to be paid after the lesson.

Crema Coffee + Bakery

Hey everyone! My name is Mary and I am the organizer of the French group. I will be wearing a red beret and a red sweater in the cafe and the group will be sitting at a large table in the back. PLEASE try to come exactly on time because the cafe does get extremely crowded around 10am. I am posting our next article that we will be discussing for December the 14th. Here is the link. http://www.histoire-passy-montblanc.fr/histoire-de-passy/de-la-prehistoire-au-xxie-s/la-guerre-de-1914-1918/les-soldats-de-passy-en-1914/fraternisations-et-treve-de-noel-decembre-1914-janvier-1915/

The first meeting is free for all NEW members and if you would like to continue coming there will be a $5.00 monthly fee to join the group. A portion of this amount will go towards future fun events for this group such a French Karaoke night.

REMINDER: Please try to arrive on time. I like to begin our meet up on time so that everyone is not lost as to what we are talking about. Merci beaucoup!

FYI: For the payment fee, please create a Paypal account and pay $5.00 on the 28th of each month. I prefer electronic money but I will accept cash as well. The PayPal link is: https://www.paypal.com. PayPal is free to use so you don’t have to pay any money to sign up. Once you create an account you can send the $5.00 to my email which is [masked]. :)
