We meet once a month on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 10:00 am.
We are a French Conversation Beginners Group, finding out about France, its people and customs along the way. Our aim is to be able to understand and converse in the French language when travelling to France or Europe on holiday.
Wednesday 12 December 2018
The last meeting of 2018 saw us have our Christmas French Meeting. We played ‘Christmas Strip Bingo’ which is not what you might think. This didn’t involve taking off any clothing, just tearing off strips of paper and we sang some French Christmas Carols.
Afterwards we had a ‘French Feast’ with cheeses, paté, quiche, a baguette and a bûche de Noel, all washed down with a Kir or a Kir Royal. Very enjoyable.
Joyeux Noel et Bonne Année a Tous. A la Nouvelle Année 2019.

For our last meeting of 2016 we went to Café Rouge, Lakeside. We were served by a wonderful waiter who spoke to us in French and the ambiance of the Café made us feel that we were in France. The food and company was excellent, which put us very much in the Christmas Spirit.
