Expand the mind as well as the definition itself of what makes a classic a classic. First Tuesday of the month.

TURNING THE PAGE

COCKTAILS & CONVERSATION
Ladies’ Night Out! Each month, we meet on varying evenings in different bars around central Bordeaux.

DEJEUNER FRANCAIS
Un déjeuner mensuel où l’on parle exclusivement en français. Françaises ou non sont toutes invitées à participer. L’idée est d’offrir aux non-francophones l’opportunité d’affiner leur français parlé. Les déjeuners ont généralement lieu en semaine (exceptionnellement le weekend) dans des restaurants sur Bordeaux ou chez un membre du BWC (“déjeuner-partage”).

DISCUSSION GROUP
First Monday of each month for one hour of English and one hour of French conversation.

> Creativity and Games

MAH-JONG
Meets once each month. All levels of skill are welcome, even those who have never played before.
