Our French language conversation groups are open to all AF DuPage members regardless of French fluency. All levels of French are welcome and we invite beginners & native speakers to come together for informal conversation.
We have resumed in-person conversation groups outdoors at Ballydoyle the third Monday of the month, and will be trying out the deck overlooking the Fox River at Kava Diem in St. Charles for the morning group that meets on the second Wednesday.
The remaining conversation groups will continue on Zoom for the present. Please see the list of dates below for times and locations.
Zoom sessions may be divided into small “breakout rooms” which enable more intimate conversation with some of your AF DuPage friends.
For in-person conversation groups, we are unable to reserve tables, so seating will be first come, first served. On the Ballydoyle terrace, we aren't able to push tables together, so groups will be seated at smaller tables.
We ask that our members support our host restaurants by purchasing something to eat or drink during the gathering.
Members, please watch your email for an invitation. No need to pre-register.
AF DuPage continues to follow CDC and state and local safety guidelines at its events. By attending AF DuPage in-person events, participants voluntarily agree to assume full responsibility and liability for any risks incurred and agree not to hold AF DuPage, Inc. or its Directors or Officers liable for any illness or injury.
We highly recommend vaccinations and boosters for attendees and an attendance list will be passed around at indoor events to enable contact tracing if necessary.

*If weather conditions allow, we look forward to meeting outside at these venues. However, if we meet indoors, participants should use their own judgement attending an in-person indoor event. An attendance sheet will be circulated in case we need to do any contact tracing after the event has taken place. In some cases, an outdoor event will be moved to Zoom with notice in advance.
An opportunity to chat, en français, with Alliance Française members across the United States.

Similar to our own AF DuPage conversation groups, attendees will be assigned to breakout rooms of 4-5 people, with each breakout session lasting 12-14 minutes. The rooms are then re-created (for a different mix each time). In this way, participants get to meet and chat with a variety of participants from different backgrounds and fluency levels.
The group is for intermediate to advanced (or fluent) speakers who are current members of an Alliance Française chapter in the U.S.
The national group meets by Zoom for 55 minutes on the second Tuesday and the second Wednesdays of each month. You can attend one, or the other, or both!
