Fluentish Book Launch Party in London

December 5, 2023 @ 1:30 pm - 7:00 pm EST

AHHHH! The time has come to celebrate the launch of Fluentish, my first published book, and journal designed to take your language learning off the page and into the real world! I’m organizing this entire event at one of the sexiest venues in London, a 5-star boutique hotel, The Mandrake. It will be a Jo Franco-produced event, so you can expect many personal touches, thoughtful moments, and meeting your future language-loving international best friends.

This will be the language meet-up of the YEAR!

Get Tickets Here.

Every ticket includes 2 drink tickets for beer or wine, and there will be a live performance by one of my favorite multilingual London-based performers, Davide Shorty. Bring your good vibes and dancing shoes, and get ready to celebrate all things multilingual and multicultural!

Ticket types:

VIP Ticket:

VIP guests have early access to the intimate book talk in a fairy-lit atrium at The Mandrake. I’ve asked my good friend and powerhouse business owner, language teacher, and global soul, Lucy Simkins, to interview me, Jo Franco, about what it means to be Fluentish. There will be a Q&A portion as well where VIP guests can start a juicy dialogue about their language learning tips and tricks and get their copy of Fluentish signed by me!
