La lettre de MOLKOÏ & COVID-19 Updates - March 2020

Oï there,

At MOLKOÏ, the safety of our members and hosts is our top priority.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, MOLKOÏ will cancel all in-person events and classes as a precautionary measure for 30 days, beginning tomorrow, Saturday, March 14, 2020. We heard your concerns and messages and we prefer to be on the safe side but it's not a moment to be sad or fearful. On the contrary, let's take this challenging time as an opportunity to be creative and to strengthen our community.



All our sessions will be maintained following our regular schedule.

They will just happen online as we are extremely happy to announce the opening of the MOLKOÏ Online Chapter.

Rapha, our Saturday morning Host, will start tomorrow, Saturday, March 14, 2020 at 8:30am, on Zoom (the link will be sent in the morning before the beginning of the session to all attendees RSVPed Yes).

However, after this inaugural session, the home of our Online Chapter will be Google Meet, a simple and efficient video conference solution.

You will receive more details during the day, before tomorrow afternoon session (scheduled Saturday, March 14, 2020 at 2:00pm).



Another technological innovation will be happening today:

MOLKOÏ is switching from Hobnob to Punchbowl for its invitation system.

We've probably reached the limits of what Hobnob could do to support the growth of our community and it's time for a change.

With this new system, you will still receive the invitations by text, be able to see who is going to host or attend the session, RSVP directly from your phone, and send me direct messages and questions.

What's new then?

The reliability and timing of the invitations will greatly improve as we will now be able to schedule the invitations in advance.

Also, you will have access to a poll for each session to give us your feedback a little bit like you would do at the end of a ride with Uber or Lyft.



By visiting, you will notice that we have a brand new section available to you, full of RESOURCES to work on your French from the comfort and warmth of your home.
