ON SE RÉUNIRA POUR JASER EN FRANÇAIS ET POUR JOUER AU SCRABBLE FRANÇAIS!

We will get together, chat in French, and play French Scrabble!

SCRABBLE SKILL: ALL LEVELS WELCOME – FROM ZERO TO EXPERT

All levels of Scrabble skill and experience are welcome, from zero to expert. My goal is to have a relaxed evening, with a place for all skill levels. We play "open dictionary" – you can consult the dictionary to help you make your move. I will bring "deluxe" French Scrabble games, and official French Scrabble dictionaries.

SPOKEN FRENCH: SOME ABILITY TO SPEAK FRENCH IS REQUIRED

We will be speaking French all evening, as at the other French Meetup events.

As mentioned above, I do not do any screening for French (or English) Scrabble skills. However, I do request some ability to *speak* French. The minimum level I am looking for is pretty low. You just need to have enough knowledge and/or enthusiasm that your partners in a game don't feel obliged to speak to you continually in English (which would break the French immersion experience that I am aiming for). Every Scrabble attendee that I have spoken with so far has been fine. I am just trying to avoid signups from people who currently speak virtually *no* French.

PLEASE CONSIDER BUYING A DRINK

Please consider buying a drink (it could just be a Coke or Perrier) or some food, since the Railway Club will be reserving the entire back room for us.

THERE IS A FEE OF $1

The money collected will be used for the Vancouver French Language Meetup Group to purchase Scrabble games and dictionaries from me - a gradual transfer of Scrabble assets from me to the Meetup group.
