English/French Language Exchange at Paul’s Place ?????

Meet us at Paul’s Place in the Chartrons every month for the ICB English/French Language Exchange ! This ICB activity is open to everyone ! If you have friends, neighbors or colleagues eager to practice their conversation skills with native speakers of either language in a friendly atmosphere of fun, please encourge them to come along !

Price: 5 euros per person includes a beverage and nibbles, along with the 1- 1/2 hour exchange.

Retrouvez nous chaque mois de 18h30 à 20h, chez Paul’s Place aux Chartrons, pour une soirée de conversation à bâtons rompus en français et en anglais selon la formule “Speed chatting”.

Voici comment se déroule une soirée type : les natifs de langue anglaise s’installent dos au mur à une petite table face aux natifs de langue française pour une conversation en face à face de 10 minutes en anglais puis de 10 minutes en français. A la fin de l’échange les français changent de table pour une nouvelle conversation avec un nouveau partenaire. Nous réalisons le plus souvent 3 séries d’échanges en cours de la soirée.

La participation est de 5 euros par personne et inclus une consommation et des amuses gueules.
