A local journalist wrote a story last week about a local group of people who gather to speak French - over coffee, over dinner, for movies, etc. I decided to sign up and today I went to my first club meeting! It was sooooo wonderful to sit and chat in French, as well as to help new learners with translation and pronunciation. I was a French major in college, am a 13th generation descendant of a founder of Quebec, and lived in the French Alpes for my senior year of college. Not speaking French anymore is like not being able to express a big part of who I am. It's so freeing to find others who share my passion for all things French! J'adore le francais!
