French Conversation Group

Parlez-vous Francais? Our French Conversation Group members may have lived in France or taught French, or may just want to use what they learned in college. The group, made up of intermediate French speakers or above, meets every two to three weeks for two hours. We select novels or short story collections to read aloud and discuss in our meetings.

Please write to french@llaic.org if you’d like to  join us or have any questions.

La Tertulia – Spanish Conversation

Spanish is rapidly becoming a second language in the U.S. Our Spanish Conversation group, La Tertulia, meets via Zoom bi-weekly and focuses on articles from Spanish language media from around the world. We take turns reading aloud and then discuss the content, vocabulary, style, world view and other relevant themes. Participants should feel comfortable reading, speaking, and understanding Spanish at an advanced, intermediate, or higher level.

For more information contact spanish@llaic.org.

Movie Mavens

Remember in college when you watched a film with friends and then stayed up all night discussing it? That’s what our Movie Mavens do. Go to a film together once a month and then adjourn to a nearby restaurant to analyze it. During Covid we watch the film at home independently first, then get together on Zoom for the discussion.
