|Franglish, a French-English Language Exchange|
Franglish is an organized event where native English, French, and Spanish speakers meet at a local venue for the sole purpose of exchanging languages (English & French). All levels are welcome, and you won't be judged. When you arrive at a Franglish event you have half an hour to mingle and meet people before the 2-hour event officially begins. Since the events are at bars and pubs a drink is included in the ticket price.
Each English participant goes to a table with a French partner of their choice.
– 7 minutes of the conversation in French. Only French.
– 7 minutes of the conversation in English. Only English.
– You then have 1 minute to switch tables and meet a new partner!
About every 15 minutes you'll receive a new person to speak with, this goes on for two hours.
Franglish has language exchange events all around France (Paris, Lyon, Strasbourg, Nice, Lille, etc) the United Kingdom (London, Cambridge, Oxford, Manchester), and soon the United States (New York City, November 2014). There are also Spanish/French exchanges in Paris.
