Coucou les French learners,

Le Beaujolais nouveau est arrivé ! Well not yet but soon…

QUOI DE NEUF ?

JOIN US FOR 45 MINS LIVE TO PLAY GAMES. It is happening on Fridays, November 19 & 26!

We are meeting this Friday November, 19 to get to know each other better and to have fun!

Last Friday, we had a lot of fun answering wacky questions, des questions farfelues and then playing ni oui, ni non. Watch the replay.

This popular French game is about asking questions BUT if you answer OUI or NON, you are out of the game! You need to find other words to answer like absolument or certainement pas or exactement… It is silly but fun and you don’t need any kind of preparation to play it.
Watch this family play it (they bought the board game but it is really not necessary!)

JOIN US on Friday to play with us!

The Motivation Break

The motivation break is still running. And it is available as a podcast to listen on the go!

Episode #5 is a truly inspiring conversation with Tina Coffman.

Tina is a 62 year old retiree from project planning of technology and computer science work. She was always interested in learning new things but learning a new language was the furthest thing from her mind. Tina had always felt blocked from language learning. Now she is a devoted learner on the community. Tina says “who would have thought that the greatest thing about the language journey is all the friends you meet along the way?

Alison commented in the Community ChatTina, I just watched your chat with Alice and it was so inspiring. As a visual learner I could relate to the “struggle” prior to finding Alice.

And Tricia added ” Tina, I really enjoyed your video with Alice. I could relate to a lot of what you said. I hope to join in on Happy Hour next Friday even though it will be 4 am Sydney time!

YES! we do have dedicated members in the community!

REVIEW OF THE WEEK

Dawn says after watching session #11 of the Baby Stage :

Another great Alice story. I love the extra drama in the stories about the simplest of things it’s so funny! I am now starting to write my own stories in French ” about problems” and then using them in language exchange events. I am just starting to put a few simple sentences together and actually speak and understand. Your stories are such a gift, the membership was the greatest gift I have given to myself!
