Want to practice your French with real native speakers but don’t have the budget (or time) for frequent trans-Atlantic travel? Speak Easy — a speed-dating-style evening of conversation hosted by French Morning — is just ce qu’il vous faut.
Half of participants will be native French speakers and the other half native Anglophones. French Morning will take care of partnering you up so that the conversations can flow from the moment the evening gets underway.
The first half of each 14-minute conversation will be 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 with five different partners, so it’s the perfect occasion to introduce yourself over and over and over in French without boring anyone! By the end of the first evening, we bet you’ll be able to ask “Et vous, qu’est-ce que vous faites dans la vie?” in a flawless French accent.
Our very first Speak Easy is coming up next Monday at Cercle Rouge at 6pm. For $39 you get a glass of wine, hors d’oeuvres, and — of course — a guaranteed evening of language practice and the opportunity to meet your expat neighbors: the French men and women who love the Big Apple as much as you do. Venez nombreux!
