I joined OlyParle to get to know others in the community who spoke French. I wanted to expand my network and meet others in my community who had common interests and skills.“
I like the periodic exposure to French language and culture - mainly for enrichment, awareness about other values and perspectives on international events”
I joined OlyParle because I was worried I was starting to forget all the French I had learned in high school. OlyParle provided me an avenue to keep in regular practice with French.”

Our origin story

The 2019 program purpose was to engage interns (part time) over consecutive weeks spanning at least 6+ months for language practice. Those activities, gradually used to develop tools on verbal French fluency, may vary by participant. The facilitator is a native speaker. Program offers opportunities for attendees to share their use of the language, no matter how rudimentary. This is not a class in writing or reading or a textbook based program. The main product will be recorded material (samples of the practice eedback and individual barriers to verbal ease and ultimately fluency.
