AGLR – Anglophone Group of Languedoc-Roussillon
Launched February 2011! A new, exciting and different social networking association – the Anglophone Group of Languedoc-Roussillon “AGLR”. Greatly inspired by the immensely successful group in Provence “AAGP” (Anglo-American Group of Provence) the AGLR was founded by former members of the group in Provence who have relocated to the Languedoc Roussillon, Nancy McGee and Krista Cole. The AAGP, with its 700 members and 40 years of existence, has been and will be a continual source of inspiration for our newly founded group. We are pleased to be a part of this greater network of Anglophones in the South of France. .
The aim of the AGLR is to support English speaking newcomers adapt to life in the area, to preserve and share Anglo-American traditions, language and culture and to promote a continuing exchange of friendship and understanding with the French community.
Where the AGLR differs from other associations in the area is that it offers an extended variety of activities catering to adults, teens and toddlers which include book discussions, hikes, children’s playgroups, whisky and wine tastings, afternoon tea, cooking classes, French conversation, golf, bridge, dominos, pot luck lunches and much more. The monthly calendar of activities, a description of events, contact info, restaurant reviews, etc. are available on the website www.anglophone-group-languedoc-roussillon.com.
Joining the AGLR also gives you access to the ‘One List’, a group email service where the messages you post will be sent to the mailboxes of all the members registered for it. Need specific advice? Want to buy or sell something? This lets you communicate with other members easily and effectively.
