The Bistrologue is our venue. It's a French bistro close to Saint Cyprien Republique.

Time and date: every Friday, 9pm — late

Venue: The Bistrologue

Cost: The group is free, but to ensure a good relationship with the venue, you must buy at least one drink an hour and you must pay at the time of ordering.

Coming? Pop in whenever and at whatever time suits you. There is no need to sign up for meetings. Note that 9pm is a guideline to ensure that newcomers will find us: if you already know the group and want to come earlier, feel free to!

Who is the group for?

Anyone who is fluent in English and wants to practice speaking French. The aim of the group is to meet people for conversation in French and English in a relaxed environment. There's no set topic -- it's like meeting up with a big group of friends for a chat over a few beers.

There are a number of friendly hosts for this event. There is usually at least one of them there to look after the group, however sometimes they can't make it. You can still find the group though, just listen out for a large group of English speakers or ask the bar staff for the English group.


How does it work?

The idea is to speak for half of the time in French and half of the time in English, thus making the meeting like a language exchange. You can chat to the person beside you, in front of you etc or get up and move around the table to speak to whomever you want.

Important: language level

A lot of our members are bilingual or at least fluent in both French and English. Please bear this in mind before coming, as the language level is high.
