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 scheduled meeting will be on Zoom at 4pm on Monday, June 21st.  We will just chat amongst ourselves and introduce some of our newer members who have joined the group in the last few months.  This will also be a good opportunity to figure out how we want to meet going forward.  Are we ready to meet in person?  Do we want to continue on Zoom?  Some combination of the two?  Do we want to try to get together for a Bastille Day Celebration in July?  Lots to talk about - come and add your voice to the discussion (preferably in French).
