What we're about

Bonjour tout le monde et bienvenue au meetup francais! We are a group of dedicated French speakers who have been meeting since 2002, and sharing our interest in the French language. We welcome all levels of French speakers, from beginners to native speakers, and basically, we have a great time. Please keep in mind that all of our conversations are in French, so be prepared to speak only in French. Our monthly (3rd Wednesday) meetups have continued to grow through the years and are our most popular events. Additionally, thanks to our assistant organizers and group members, we have events each week now, and plan special events throughout the year! On se vera au meetup!

This meetup is always free of charge and generously sponsored by Sophie Juster, a certified french teacher from Paris. Check out her site at www.fromenglishtofrench.com. The rates for the lessons start at $9.99/hr. Here is a short self-description:

La Promenade (Torrey Pines Beach) - 9:15

Torrey Pines Gliderport

(version française ci-après) Let's start off the weekend with a Walk at Torrey Pines Beach, à la Francaise! That's right, we'll meet at the southwest end of the parking lot at the Torrey Pines Gliderport (2800 Torrey Pines Scenic Drive, 92037) at 9:15 am this Saturday. The route will be described on the day of the walk. Sandals and other such light shoes are not advised. The main focus is to speak French, meet new people, and enjoy the beach in the morning. We will mostly be speaking in French, so this is for average to advanced speakers. But if you are learning and want to listen in, pas de problème. Though, please note, dogs are not allowed at the beach (even if you carry it). We will wait about 10 min. before leaving for the walk. So you can catch up with us if you are late. PS - If you don't RSVP you won't be able get last minute notices as in cancellations, time/location changes, etc...).

On se rencontrera à l'extrémité sud-ouest du stationnement au Torrey Pines Gliderport (2800 Torrey Pines Scenic Drive, 92037) à 9h15 ce samedi.. On vous expliquera le trajet le jour de la promenade. Il vous faudra de bonnes chaussures. Le but est de parler français, de rencontrer d'autres gens, et d’apprécier la plage le matin. On va parler français pour la plupart. Donc, cette rencontre est surtout pour ceux qui ont une moyenne ou bonne connaissance de la langue française. Mais si vous voulez apprendre le français et vous voulez écouter et peut-être participer, pas de problème. ***Veuillez noter que les chiens ne sont pas permis à la plage, même si vous les portez.*** On attendra à peu près 10 minutes avant de commencer de marcher. Vous pouvez nous rattraper si vous êtes en retard. Si vous ne répondez pas, il sera impossible de vous avertir s'il y a des changements à la dernière minute. Cette rencontre est gratuite grâce à générosité de Sophie Juster, prof de français de Paris. Voir son site à www.fromenglishtofrench.com. Les frais de leçons commencent à 9,99$.
