There is more interest in French in Santa Cruz than you might imagine! For such a small community it is surprising how often French is heard while standing in line, shopping, walking on Westcliff, hiking, surfing. Our group started in 2012 and currently the level of French spoken varies widely. The common interest is to get together to speak and listen to a language we all enjoy. We hope to encourage conversation and discussions in French. Topics will vary depending on the interests of those who attend. Anyone with a basic understanding of the language and an interest in speaking French is welcome to join!
While we do encourage beginners, having more than one at a time can be overwhelming to those who want to help. Just contact the organizer to see if there is a mentor available to help at regular Meetups.
We have only 3 Meetup 'Rules':
--Everyone Speaks Exclusively French
--We address each other informally using 'Tu' instead of 'Vous'
--We do our best to be courteous, including RSVPs. If you cannot attend, please let your host know or change your RSVP to 'not going'. Discourteous members may be warned or simply removed at the organizer's discretion.
