This small group meets in each other’s homes on a weekly basis to have French conversation. We usually relate our past week’s activities or sometimes choose a topic to discuss. We read a magazine, La Vie Outré Manche, and quite often this provokes discussion. Occasionally we give ourselves set scenarios, such as shopping, preparing for a walk or having guests to stay, which will stimulate the use of everyday or even colloquial French. We have a maximum of 10, which we find a manageable size to allow everyone to speak.
