ASSOFI: a club for the French speaking community in Isan

Post by assofi » March 18, 2010, 2:37 am

ASSOFI is a club of French speaking people and Francophiles, living in Isan (Northeastern Thailand) or being interested in this region of the world.

Our club regularly organizes cultural and leisure activities (visits, meals, various tournaments), offers its assistance and provides practical information to its members, welcomes the French speakers and the Francophiles on holidays or who recently settled in this area, promotes the French culture and language, facilitates the relationships with the local populations and works for the recognition of the French speaking community by the authorities…

Are you sure the spelling is correct, pardon my ignorance but what the hell does ASSOFI mean apart from being definitely foreign.............

Look at his avator, Paul, it has the same spelling, so it will be correct, I suppose.

Do these french people have any website or forum, where are they exactly, how can they be contacted?

Our club was formerly known as "ASSOciation Francophone-Issan" (Francophone non-profit organisation located in Issan), but there have been several changes in our structure and charter since its early days. We just kept "ASSOFI" for its new name (since September 2009). By the way, we pronounce it (more or less) like "A-SO-FEE" in French, not "Ass of I"! :lol:

Thank you so much. I sent it immedeatly to my french-speaking friend in Ban Muang. Perhaps he even knows it. As I read in the website they (or you) are mostly concerned with meetings between yourselfs, am I right?

Thankyou for the interpretation assofi, I did by chance look at your avatar but unlike Michaleo, I really could work out what it meant.
Thanks again.

Not only. Our objectives are summarized in the opening post of this thread and also mentioned in French in our charter: http://www.assofi.org/doc/charte09.pdf

For your information, a lunch is organised by our club in Udon Thani on April 3rd 2010 (more details in French are available here: http://assofi.org/journal/archives/310) and of course, your friend and every francophile are welcome.

One of our members wants to organise the visit of several local sites (including the Phu Foilum National Park) and I will post more details on our website soon.
