Brush up on your French at the London French Meetup

Your author is a fan of London meetups, part of the the world's largest network of local groups, and aiming to revitalize local community and help people around the world self-organize. One excellent example of the value of such things is the London French Meetup, which brings together French speakers regularly to have a chat and, where necessary, brush up on their language skills.

The next meeting is tonight, and will bring together a group of French speakers drawn from the online community of around 3,000 people, simply to speak French. The group is made up of 1/3 French nationals, 1/3 English nationals and 1/3 other nationalities and francophone countries.

The group meets centrally and this evening's meeting is in a bar just off the Strand, but you must join if you want to know more, and attend. They ask that you have a reasonable level of French and it all kicks off from about 6.30pm. For more, see http://french.meetup.com/32/

  1. In recent times my wife and I have been talking about how we really need to get out and make some new friends. After reading your post I have signed to "Meetup" and we are now planning to join some groups and make new friends. Many thanks.

  2. Great to hear it. I keep thinking I should get to more.

    Maybe that can be a new years resolution for me...
