What we're about

**Calling all beginner and intermediate level French speakers**

Join us as we explore the city, practice our french speaking skills and make new friends!

We will go to events, art exhibits, meet in cafes, maybe watch French movies and have relaxed conversation. The goal is to get out and expose ourselves to different conversation triggers. This way, we will learn new words we may not have thought to learn while having an immersive French experience at whatever level you are and at a pace that works for you. We will also exchange self-study tips and be each other’s teacher and student as both roles help to improve recall and understanding.

We ask that if you join one of our events that you make every effort to converse en fracais, s'il vous plait! While this group is targeted towards beginners and intermediate levels and your vocabulary may make it a challenge to communicate, the goal is to push ourselves out of our comfort zone. If you're unsure about something or you do not know the correct word, try your best and ask! We are all in the same boat.

This group is ideally suited for anyone at the beginner to intermediate level of French who is interested in practicing their French conversation in a casual environment. Advanced French speakers are also welcome to attend but know that we will practice and speak at a slower pace and you may not find the experience as enriching.

Tu veux faire de quoi demain? Do you want to hang out tomorrow?

A bientot! See you soon! :)
