The aim is to have fun with French, whilst learning about French language and culture, and improving on current level of ability.
During the current 'Covid situation', you can still contact us via the little bird.
We are trying to keep up our current schedules and 'meet up' on the phone or via the internet.
Please see individual sub pages and contact the individual convenors for venue details and up to date information about each of their groups. At the moment they are mostly meeting on zoom or via email, but during the summer some small group garden meetings took place.
For those who just want to keep up their french in their own time 'Duolingo', caters for all levels and is very easy to use, 'francais authentique' gives excellent podcasts for those with a little more knowledge (both are free if you avoid signing up for extras) There are also a whole host of other resources available on the net, and there is even Lockdown learning on the BBC. Contact us if you would like more ideas.
Our new French style Petanque group has been playing on an area at the end of the path beside the cafe at the Quay, it has been a fun way to enjoy the outdoors, get active and enjoy the company of others with an interest in France and all things French. We haves strict protocols to ensure that we are 'Covid-secure'. Please contact the overall convener, via the little bird for more information and a copy of the latest guidelines. We resume on the 19th April at 2.00pm.
