French-English Exchange - Thur 19 February

Postby AGIS » Sat, 14 Feb 2009 9:35 am

Hello all, starting a new thread to try again to set up a French-English exchange. I had a couple of replies from the previous thread and suggest we try meeting from 7-9 PM on Thursday, 19 February at the StarBucks at the top of the escalator going from City Hall MRT to Raffles City. If you are interested, please post here or contact me directly at agis464@gmail.com

On me, I'm an American but lived over 10 years in France so my French is pretty good (though not perfect!). I am not a French teacher and just doing this for fun and to meet people. The contacts I've had so far are people looking to practice French, though I really hope that some of you French expats out there that want to work on your English join in so we can really make this a two way exchange. A group of five or six people would be great if we can swing it ...

Hey I'll be there.

Yes, I agree, it would be great if we could have some French speakers to add to the group!
I heart bunnies!

There have not been tons of replies, but I would still like to push ahead with the English-French Exchange set for tomorrow. If you are coming, send me an e-mail (agis464@gmail.com) and I will give you my hand phone number so you can locate me in the StarBucks. Otherwise I'll be the guy there with the book "Mes adventures sur les routes du vin" on the table.

Sorry to all interested in the French-English exchange but very busy with work and will be away for two weeks starting next Monday on business. Will try to arrange something again in April when I am back. In the meantime, send an e-mail to agis464@gmail.com if you want to be included in my mailing list.

Best,

Patrick
