Kingsbridge Estuary

French Culture

Dawn has arranged that the group meets at her home in Salcombe at 10.30am on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month.

The session is all in French and Dawn sets a cultural topic on anything French in advance by emailing the members and asking them to choose a relevant subject, then they 'reply all' their answers so no one duplicates his/her choice. Each is then asked to present their choice at the meeting and this very often leads to a pleasing general discussion. Art, literature, customs, music, wine, geography etc are all covered. Wikipedia is very helpful of course and we all say we have learnt something new by the end of the session – on s'entend bien!

2015 was the fourth year some of us joined up for a French holiday which previously was in Brittany or Normandy. In a visit initiated by the Language Group, we went to Bordeaux and moved on to Riberac in the Dordogne.

Space is limited but if anyone wishes to join the group, please contact Dawn on 844046 or click French Culture to email.
