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.
Some of our conversation groups will again be held in person, and some will be on Zoom. Please see the list of dates below for times and locations.
For in-person conversation groups at these venues, 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.
Please note: For our in-person events, CDC, State of Illinois and local Covid regulations will apply. Unvaccinated members must wear masks and socially distance during in-person events.
Zoom sessions may be divided into small “breakout rooms” which enable more intimate conversation with some of your AF DuPage friends.
Members, please watch your email for an invitation. No need to pre-register.

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!
