Hiking and French-English Exchange on Thursdays

Hike on Mount Royal and in the neighbourhood while practicing your French and English! We’ll walk, get fresh air and exercise, and have a weekly language exchange with neighbours! Just wear decent walking shoes – sometimes we’ll venture onto smaller trails! Rain or shine.

When: Thursday evenings from 6 – 7:45 pm or so, starting on September 23rd.

Where: We will meet beside the Mordecai Richler gazebo. It is at the bottom of Mount Royal, along Park Avenue, close to the monument (on the downtown side):  https://goo.gl/maps/1iKBZVvWcGnsFmGk6
