French language improvement
Twice a month, members with a good enough knowledge of French meet to read and discuss articles in French. The articles are sent to members who sign up so they can be prepared. Speaking French helps the participants improve their comprehension and grammar, as well as their spoken French. As our French teacher now lives in France our meetings are conducted via ZOOM.
Group co-leaders: Jeannine Peerless & Tishina Subrahmanyam

Spanish conversation group
This group welcomes non-native Spanish speakers as well as native speakers who wish to converse in Spanish. We choose a different theme for a lively discussion each month. Since we do not speak in English in this group, a fair degree of fluency in Spanish is desirable.Group leader: Sheila Ramirez
This group is for anyone interested in listening, speaking and improving Italian language. All skill levels are welcome, but beginner participants need to know basic grammar and speak and understand simple sentences. It’s a time to gather with other women to practice Italian and discuss various topics while having fun and without stress. We usually decide the theme of the discussion together.
Meetings are held every 4th Tuesday of the month from 2pm to 4pm in a coffee shop or restaurant or hosted by the group leader or one of the group members.
