Want to hear and speak French in a different environment? Forget classroom and grammar rules, our social and cultural afternoon workshops are all about having fun learning about French culture and playing games.
For the full French experience, we’ve partnered with French restaurant Sous le Soleil in Roseville to combine intellectual and gastronomic pleasures with an afternoon of lunch & Tarot. We’ll start our event with a delicious 2 course lunch in the beautiful outside area of the restaurant. Once our appetite is satisfied, we’ll get down to business and start playing Tarot, a famous French card game similar to bridge. Marion will be on hand to explain the rules and guide you through the subtleties of this strategic game played in groups of 4 or 5. Each participant will also receive a booklet in French or English explaining the rules.
This afternoon of lunch & Tarot is open to anyone who is interested in playing Tarot, whether they have never played before or are absolute experts. Rules will be explained in French or English according to the French level of each table.
Covid-19 restrictions: We will be following all restrictions in place at the time of the event. At this stage, this means that :
- Participants will be placed in tables of 5 maximum, will have to stay seated at their table and will not be allowed to mingle with participants from other tables during the event. Table placement will be organized a few days before the event, so that French à la Carte can send a list to the restaurant with names of participants per table. We are happy to accommodate your preferences in term of seating arrangements, simply send us an email with the names of the participants that you’d like to be seated with.
- Participants are welcome to bring their own wine or order drinks from the restaurant during lunch, but not afterwards when we start playing Tarot. Once the tables are cleared and the card game starts, no alcohol is to be consumed for the remainder of the afternoon.
