A Mother finding a French-speaking mom


I'm a mother of 2 kids. I speak English, Mandarin & a little German.

I'm currently learning french at Alliance Francaise.
I would like to look for a french-speaking mother who would like to meet up with me.
I wish to have some conversation in french and hopefully a kid (or kids) to play with my girl.
Cos it's difficult to learn a language when there's no one to speak to (unless I go to Colmar or Mulhouse every weekend).

I live in Affoltern, Zurich (next to Oerlikon). I'm quite mobile as I do drive. Hence, I'm quite flexible with regards to the meeting venue.
My boy is usually in school, hence usually it's just me & my 1.5 year old girl.

Merci beaucoup.

Re: A Mother finding a French-speaking mom

I live in Basel, a bit too far maybe to meet up especially I have no car but if you can write to me in French if you want! I am French, and I have lived in the UK for 10 years before ending up in Basel a few months ago. I have 2 children, one is 3 and the other one is 13 weeks old! That keeps me quite busy at home! I studied a bit Mandarin a few years ago, I loved it, I think it is such a great language. I actually finds it easier to learn than German! My German is close to zero but I am learning, step by step, as much as I can. So maybe I could try to write to you in German and you could write to me in French.
A+ (short for "speak soon")
