Snowshoeing and FR/EN >> Thursdays at 6 p.m.

Come for a snowshoe hike on Mount Royal this winter while practising French and English! Half of each outing will take place in French and half in English. We will provide fun games and discussion topics to ‘break the ice’.

For whom?

This activity is for active adults who can walk for an hour and a half wearing snowshoes. About half of the walk is uphill. You are welcome to register no matter what level of French and English you have, but the activity is most interesting if you already have basic French and English – enough to ask simple questions.


Meet in Jeanne-Mance Park at the corner of Duluth West and Parc Avenue here.


Thursday evenings from 6 pm – 8 pm, starting January 20th, 2022. We will add on following outings as the weeks go by.
