What we're about


"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 which lasts at least two hours. We have our own reserved table at a restaurant where you can eat or simply have coffee or tea. There are no predetermined topics of discussion. We keep it light and always have fun. We also have special events such as the 14th of July, Wine & Cheese parties, and general get-togethers.

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 many diverse countries, and some are from right here in sunny Southern California.

The organizer is French and American, 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. It is recommended you seek classes elsewhere.

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.

Please join the group 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 group stands against predators. Women will feel protected in a safe environment that discourages sexual harassment of any kind. Please realize that handing over your phone number puts you at risk outside of group events. Please use the message center available in Meetup to retain a certain amount of privacy when communicating with group members. Ask the organizer when in doubt. Report any abuse immediately.

The cost to participate is $1 a week, payable in cash on location. No coins.
