French Conversation Group 2
This French conversation group is split into two. They are run on alternative weeks and have different levels of abilities.
Group one is the more advanced group, whilst group two is composed mainly of beginners or learners who are less confident.
Both groups are run on a similar pattern. The first hour is devoted to conversation in French about any topic coming to mind. The second hour, after coffee break, is more constructive and will centre on vocabulary practice, grammar revision etc, based on consistent weaknesses or mistakes picked up during the first hour.
Everybody participates at his/her level of ability; the only requirement is to have ‘a go’.
The beginners’ group usually prefers to prepare their contribution to the conversation beforehand, so we loosely choose a subject such as food (which can cover anything from cookery, recipes, restaurants, meals etc etc), outings, TV programs etc. The list is not exhaustive.
The more advanced group is more spontaneous.
We have a lot of fun and laughter, as the atmosphere is very relaxed and everybody usually bonds very quickly.
