Hello

Am interested in this practical idea, am in the same boat, I teach English and go home and speak in  Italian to my Hungarian-born partner (our common language) so I'm making hardly any progress with  spoken French, and am often rendered mute by the machine-gun fire speed of most French speakers!  

I live in the centre of Nice. If someone can get together a group I'd be glad to join.

When I first arrived in Spain I stayed in a pension for about six weeks before I got an apartment. There was an Austrian guy staying there whose Spanish was about on the same (low) level as mine, so we used to go out and eat dinner together, armed with dictionaries and converse in atrocious Spanish, as he didn't speak English and I didn't speak German. This was a wonderful way to learn Spanish, as we weren't embarrassed about making mistakes and we had no other means of communication. When we got stuck, one of us would search in dictionary for the Spanish word, and then the other one would look up the same word to find the meaning. It worked a treat.

Hi,

Where abouts are you based?  I think it's a great idea.  After all practice makes perfect and wine always helps with the flow!
