What we're about

Parlez-vous français? Looking to speak French? Come meet other Francophiles and Francophones pour conversation en français. At least an intermediate level of proficiency is necessary. Venez prendre un café ou thé et bavardez avec nous! The people are very nice- très sympa! They come from all over the world- at least 16 countries represented! All ages welcome. Please note: this is not a class nor a course for those wanting to start learning French.

We meet in the back room of Panera Bread, 2542 Albany Avenue next to Staples at Bishop's Corner, West Hartford. It is in the northwest corner of the plaza. Bienvenue! We meet once per month on the 2nd Monday from 7-9:15 PM IF there are at least 4 people signed up . We welcome new members. Please do RSVP so we will know to expect you.

Those of you needing directions to Panera: If you are using mapquest or GPS, it will likely send you on a long uncomfortable route. Best: I-84, exit 43, turn RIGHT then QUICK LEFT. You will be on TroutBrook Dr. Stay on it until the first big intersection (Albany Ave). Turn left on Albany Ave, then turn right at the third light, into the Staples/Panera parking lot.

Look for the table with the Tour Eiffel!! We meet the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 7:15 PM. If you arrive punctually and there is nobody there, just wait a few minutes- some of us travel long distances or work late. Bienvenue! et a bientot! Please note: Some of us might not be there exactly at 7:15. We often work late and do our best to get there. If you don't see anyone, just sit in the back room and we will join you. Those of you needing directions to Panera: Your GPS might send you on a less than desirable route. We Recommend I-84 to exit 43 (Park Rd/West Hartford Center).
