Due to the exceptional circumstances surrounding the current shelter-in-place order, all upcoming regular Alliance Française de la Péninsule de Monterey events will be canceled except the Circle du Livre, which will be held over Zoom (see April Bulletin for details).

Mini conversations

If you are missing our monthly conversations, we propose mini-conversations! We can still speak French with each other via telephone, zoom, or whatever format you are comfortable with. You can choose which time period you are available: Apéro Conversation on Wednesday, April 8 between 4:30-6:30pm; Café Conversation on Tuesday, April 14 between 10am-12pm; Bechler’s Lunch on Thursday, April 23 between 1:30-3:30pm. The conversation does not have to last two hours but will occur during these time frames to keep it simple. 

Contact Nicole Chupka to get a conversation partner. In the email, leave (a) your name; (b) approximate level of French; (c) whether you are available during the apéro-conversation, café conversation, and/or Bechler’s lunch time slot(s); and (d) modes of communication (Zoom, telephone, Skype, and so on) that you are comfortable with. The more people who sign up, the more conversation partners we can match up!
