This is a group of enthusiasts who want either to resurrect school French, or try French out for the first time. We use two textbooks, Voila, a course in French for adult beginners, and Living French, both of which aim to immerse the student progressively in the language – so far, the group is in up to its ears! (par-dessus la tête). We aim to go ever further, of course!
Both books are designed to be largely self-teaching, so “classes” and “lessons” are not the order of the day, although of course, revision and independent guidance are always necessary. It’s quite hard, but enjoyable work, and it gets the brain-box ticking over nicely!
