Friday French Conversation
We run an intermediate conversational French group, every Friday morning (currently in either Bembridge or Ryde).
The aim of the group is to enjoy ourselves whilst speaking French, to ensure that we all at the very least retain our spoken French and improve as much as we can.
We generally start each get together with a news round of what we have all been doing since we last met.
Then we have a cup of coffee and move on to activities. For example we might play “Call My Bluff” or “Would I Lie to You”, translate an article from a French magazine, or listen to and translate some spoken French. This is a very sociable group, quite a few of the members have lived in France, we all enjoy visiting France and speaking French."
Personally I have found that alcohol helps my fluency but we don't worry we do not drink on Fridays, or only tea and coffee. We do however run a Christmas party and a summer party for group members and their partners where some beer and wine can be found."
