Barnsley & District

French, Conversational

Conversational French (Currently FULL but please let us know of your interest)

We meet at Birdwell Community Centre (S70 5TQ) on alternate Wednesday afternoons from 2.00-4.00 pm. The calendar in The Buzz will inform you of our dates.

The group is currently full but a waiting list is in operation so if you are interested please phone the co-ordinator.

Our emphasis is on speaking the language but we do also follow a text book for adults called Fa├žon de Parler book 2 edition 4 which members buy themselves. This book helps us with grammar and builds progression into our language experience. It also provides us with dialogues which we practice in pairs and the CDs help with pronunciation. As we have been meeting for some years now the group is not a beginners group and some experience of speaking the language is important (either formal language qualifications such as a GCSE pass or having lived and spoken French with native speakers). It is useful to have a French/English dictionary a notebook, pen or pencil and a folder for hand outs.

Each session we may have French jokes, discussions often on current issues (in France and for the Third Age), poems, songs, articles about French traditions, festivals, places of interest and French history. We also play games such as Le Pendu (Hangman), Guess Who? Scrabble, Happy Families, Bingo, other number games, dice games and Des Chiffres et Des Lettres (Countdown).

The idea is to make our language learning fun; but it is also a useful way to exercise the brain and to enjoy the company of the group.

Coordinator: Gloria King
