French Friday

Would you like to better integrate French in your everyday life?

Are you eager to put into practice what you have learned in your French classes, but don’t feel ready or comfortable enough to do it in a French only environment?

Join us at our next French Friday!

What is French Friday exactly?

  • A free conversation event where you can dare to speak French while having fun!
  • 9 Francophiles with a good basic knowledge of French (A1 minimum) who want to speak French.
  • 1 Native Speaker: Isabelle (Founder & Language Coach @Prêt à Parler Geneva) to guide you through the process and offer her help, tips, and advice.
  • 2 ½ hours of French Conversation during which you can have lunch and/or drinks (at your own cost) over your lunch break. (You may arrive a bit later and/or leave earlier to better fit your busy schedule.)
  • Explanations in English, when necessary, so you don’t get lost in translation!

Thank you Isabelle for a fabulous French Friday! It was a lot of fun. I have had many French Canadian teachers and you are my favorite one. 😊 I was very happy to have the opportunity to speak French, learn new vocabulary, have my French corrected, and meet other French students. Looking forward to the next French Friday in May! (Anna from Canada)
