WHO JOINS?

Anyone may become a member. The only requirements are: an interest in French culture and language, and a willingness to meet with others in a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere of lively discussion.  Members vary widely in their ability to speak and use French. Some were born in countries where French is spoken. Others studied French in high school or college. Some learned the language while living in a French-speaking country or serving in the armed forces. Still others are searching for their roots and want to learn about the language and culture of their ancestors.  Consider joining our growing group of francophones and francophiles of all ages.
