What we're about
Bonjour et bienvenue!
The Adelaide French Language Meetup (AFLM) group allows local French-speakers to meet.
As a group, our aim is to practise the language in any way by meeting and engaging in various activities (especially linked to food), which are organised as low cost as possible to members.
We have regular and occasional meetings. Please as a courtesy to the organiser, UPDATE your RSVPs.
When you register for the first time:
choose a name that enables us to recognise & remember you (eg your real name). provide us with your email address (compulsory) or a friend's email address. send the organiser/s your contact number (mobile preferred) so we can get in touch if something changes à la dernière minute. ( A list of all members' phone numbers will be available to Event Organisers and the organiser team only). From the 1st October 2011, there is a compulsory 12-month membership fee of $5 to be paid within 2 weeks or upon attending your first meetup. This allows you to attend as many meetups as you want without having to pay $2 each time (our previous method to cover site & group costs). This fee is to keep the website alive. Please hand it in to the organiser and do not let him/her ask you for it. SACREBLEU!
Please mix with everyone, whether they are native speakers or not. We are very open-minded, eager to get to know you and welcome cultural diversity in its broadest sense, as it will spark more conversation topics along the way. Oui! oui! oui!
Some traditional French customs and activities may be respected (eg. "La Galette des Rois", cheese/chocolate fondues and other French cuisine) whereas some meetups may be adapting something happening in our beautiful Adelaide to make it a sensational opportunity to practise French or to develop our listening and speaking skills (as well as our vocabulary!). Oh la! la!
We welcome your highly valuable meetup suggestions, remarks, ideas for places and activities, etc as we have a world of endless possibilities ahead of us, PARBLEU!
Feel free to contact us, we're only too happy to get French going, c'est la vie!
