PostHeaderIcon History

The "Froggies" is regulated by the non-profit associations law of 1st July 1901

The original idea was to hold diner evenings between friends where only English would be spoken; sharing experiences and improving spoken English while having fun. It was with this idea that we decided to enlarge the circle of friends by forming a new association: FROGGIES

2010-2011 :

The Frog was born on the 1st September 2010 when the Froggies Association was created. It started
with 3 active members and quicky grew by word of mouth to have 8 active members in June 2010.
