FRENCH CONVERSATION 2
Our conversation is based on pre-agreed subjects, or articles in French circulated prior to meetings. We also read aloud and translate the articles and discus grammatical points. Song lyrics, films, and word games are also used to provide variety. Not suitable for beginners, as we try to conduct at least some of our ad-hoc chat in French, and so a reasonable degree of oral fluency is needed.
Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, the group has been meeting weekly (instead of monthly) on Zoom. For distribution of suitable items, we use Google Drive, and for quick and easy discussion on who's attending, who isn't and which items we're going to look at, we use a WhatsApp group. This has all worked very well, and (as at September 2021) we have not yet planned to resume in-person meetings, but will keep that under review.
