What most interests you about the the various French-speaking cultures? Their cuisine, their cinema, their music? Or simply the French language?

Becoming immersed in the language so I can become conversational. And the food. :D

If you speak French, what is your proficiency level? False beginner, advanced beginner, intermediate, advanced, native?

Beginner at best.

What types of activities are you likely to participate in? Weekly conversation groups, movie nights at a movie theatre or a member's home, brunch or dinner, potlucks at a member's home, French-lang book club, symphony/opera of France, suggestions?

Any of the above.

If you have spent time in a French-speaking country, where was it and what was your reason for being there?

I spent summers and holidays in Quebec with family. I have relatives in Montreal as I was born there.

Would you care to share an anecdote as to what first inspired your interest in French, or perhaps an interesting story from your travels abroad?

I recently found my biological mother and half-brothers. Her first language is French as are my brothers. One of my brothers does not speak English so it makes it difficult to communicate with him. I took French in high school and college but have lost most of it along the way. I would like to become conversational so I can speak to my new family in their language.
