Kingsbridge Estuary

French Language

Elizabeth has taken over as group leader from Jane (Nov 2018).

We meet at the homes of different members, usually in Kingsbridge, every other Thursday, from 10.00am to 12 noon.

The group is for those who already have a good basic knowledge of French, who would like to improve their communication skills and grow in confidence with the language. As well as French conversation, we also spend time on grammar and on increasing our range of vocabulary. From January 2019, we will be using the book À Table, all about French food and French dining habits, which is at level A2 of the European Portfolio for languages. We also use Yabla French, an online resource with a range of videos at different levels and which gives online help with grammar through regular email updates. Our classes are a lot of fun and we usually include poems and songs as well as aspects of French civilisation and culture as part of our curriculum.

The exchange trips with an equivalent group learning English in the Bordeaux area are continuing. Class members will travel to Bordeaux in May 2019 and our French counterparts will come to the South Hams in September 2019.

Sadly, the French language group is full at present and there is a waiting list. Please contact Elizabeth if you are interested to be added to the list though at the moment, none of the class members have indicated their intention to leave.
