French Conversation

This group conversation is well suited for people with conversational knowledge of French looking to practice. This is an additional opportunity for people who take a French class at FRIEDA to practice.
We aim to meet in person but will gather online if the majority of the attendees request it*.

* This will also be subject to recommendations and mandates issued by the City of Philadelphia and the PA Departments of Health. FRIEDA community will confirm via email whether the meeting is in person or via zoom (with zoom link details) 24 hours prior to the meeting.
For any inquiries, please reach out to us via email.

This 60-minute discussion centers around a topic, an article, a short story, a song, a video or a film selected by the group. Your goal is to come prepared to share your thoughts in a lively discussion. The group leader guides the conversation and may provide here and there vocabulary and a few corrections when needed. This is not a class but more an opportunity to express yourself in French, freely.
