What we're about
ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT FRANCE AND ITS CULTURE? PRACTICE YOUR FRENCH HERE. WE MEET IN STUDIO CITY WEDNESDAY EVENINGS AT 7PM.
"Voulez-vous parlez avec moi ?" is a French conversational group. We meet in Studio City on Wednesday evenings at 7pm. This is our main event, and lasts at least two hours. We have our own reserved table at a restaurant where you can eat or simply have coffee or a smoothie. There are no predetermined topics of discussion. We keep it light and always have fun. We also have special events once in a while in the San Fernando Valley, such as Happy hour at Ca' Del Sole.
The participants of the group are warm and friendly, always looking to spark up a good conversation on any topic. They are from all walks of life, and bring to the table their point of views based on their culture and their life experiences. Some of our participants are truly French from France, while others are from diverse countries such as Belgium, Tunisia, Egypt, Uruguay, Argentina, and many are from right here in sunny Southern California.
The moderator is French, born in Africa, raised in Los Angeles, and is perfectly bilingual. He has a good sense of humor, and his easy-going nature puts participants at ease every time.
The group does not offer French courses.
All who already know how to formulate a sentence in French are welcome to join. As you know, practice makes perfect, and practice is what we do. There are many valid ways of learning French, but osmosis isn’t one of them.
Join the group (http://www.meetup.com/Voulez-vous-parler-avec-moi-French-conversation/join/) if you wish to practice your French. Newcomers are always welcome. Expect to have fun from the first time you participate. Many of our participants show up regularly to form the friendly, welcoming atmosphere you’d expect when meeting with close friends for coffee or a bite to eat.
The cost to participate is $1 a week, payable in cash on location.
Donations are appreciated.
