People from all over the world meet on a weekly basis at the Atelier de conversation of the Bibliothèque publique d'information located in the Centre Pompidou in Paris to practise their French. Refugees of war sit together with businessmen, easy-going students next to victims of political persecution. As diverse as its members might be, they have one goal in common that connects all of them: to learn the language and find companions while living abroad – if not to survive living abroad. At this hopeful place, social and cultural borders dissolve. People, who otherwise would never have been in touch, meet eye to eye.
