English speakers: Speak Easy wants YOU! On June 8th at the Cercle Rouge, French Morning will be organizing the third edition of its uniquely awesome speed dating-style get-together where we pair native French and native English speakers up to chat.
It’s so wildly popular with French speakers that there’s a waiting list. So don’t suffer the same fate! Get in on the ground floor and start practicing your French as soon as next week!
If you’re new to the idea, here’s the gist: at Speak Easy, half of participants are native French speakers and the other half are native Anglophones. French Morning takes care of partnering you up so the conversation flows from the moment you take your first cocktail.
The first half of each 14-minute encounter is in English, the second half will be in French. (That means that even if you struggle with French, you only have to do so for seven minutes at a time.) Over the course of the evening you’ll be able to speak French with five different partners, so it’s the perfect occasion to introduce yourself over and over and over without boring anyone!
This edition gets underway at 6:30pm at the Cercle Rouge at 241 West Broadway. Your $29 ticket includes a cocktail, hors d’oeuvres, and, of course, conversation that sparkles with wit, intelligence, and more than a little je ne sais quoi.
