French Conversation SIG


Do you speak French?  Would you like to get together with OLLI Members once a month (or so) and chat in French for an hour or so?  If so, the French Conversation SIG might be right for you.  There is a wide range of French fluency within the group, ranging from French mother tongue speakers through to people trying to  revive their HS French skills.  Some knowledge is required, you would want to be able to participate in the discussions to get the most out of the group.  

In non-COVID times we meet in local caf├ęs and sample their coffee and croissants while chatting, but nowadays, Zoom seems to work pretty well for our meetings.

Check below to see details of our upcoming schedule.  Other proposed topics include reviewing a French movie or TV show, discussing French poetry and holding a virtual auction on French treasures and trips (you would have to say why you are interested in order to place a bid).

Please contact Monica Sinclair for more details or additional information about the French SIG.



Our next meeting will take place at 11am on Thursday, July 29th - in person and outdoors.

Based on the feedback from the group we are going to have a mixture of in-person and Zoom meetings for the next few months.  Some members prefer Zoom and some were ready to have, at least, some outdoor sessions face to face.

So for our next meeting we will have Coffee & Croissants chez Monica!!  You bring the coffee (or beverage of your choice) and Monica will supply croissants and we'll chat in French for a while.
