Thursday, October 20th: Apéro with Californian students

Thursday 13th is a special night. Indeed, we invite American students from the Centre de Californie to share a glass or two with our members.

BDX-USA is open and will offer you a cocktail party with nibbles and wine where you can chat and mingle with American students who have just arrived in Bordeaux to pursue their education in France and  who’d like to meet French people.

We hope to see you then.

October 13th: Mock Election

Few elections are heating and crucial like the 2016’s American election. Who will win, Republican Donald Trump or Democrat Hillary Clinton?


If the media and some of the foreign politicians such as Hollande or Sarkozy made clear they would like to see the former First Lady sitting in the Oval Office, American citizens, the only ones legitimate to vote, seem to think differently.


Dear Americans, practice your French with Hélène


You have the right to go to one class for free.
If you like it then sign up to BDX-USA (€50 an adult/ €25 a student or a job-seeker).

NB: for each conversation hour, you have to add an extra-fee for the sessions (see below).
