« AGLR » - ANGLOPHONE GROUP OF LANGUEDOC ROUSSILLON


A new, exciting and different social networking association is being launched this February: 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 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 will 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 http://www.anglophone-group-languedoc-roussillon.com/index.htm which also has a password protected section for members providing the members directory and full details to sign up for activities and events.


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 others easily and effectively.


If you would like to join the AGLR, visit the membership page of the website for eligibility details and an application form or contact us at AGLR, 19 Quai de Lattre de Tassigny, 34200 Sete. As a special welcome offer, we are inviting potential members to participate in one activity prior to joining the Group.
