French (Eight groups)
French (Intermediate), Plumstead - Monday
This Intermediate group will continue to meet on Monday afternoons, except on the FIRST Monday of every month. We talk, do listening and reading activities (radio extracts and short news articles) and sometimes grammar revision, if and when thorny problems arise or a bit of practice seems needed. We have room for one new member, having recently lost a ‘student’. If you think our group will match your needs, please contact the Convenor.

French Conversation (Intermediate), Blackheath - Tuesday

French Conversation (Advanced), Chiselhurst - Tuesday
We are a small group (about 4 to 6) who meet to have a friendly chat about various topics such as cultural interests, travelling, French lifestyle and whatever takes our fancy. It is aimed at participants who have a good understanding of French and are able to hold a fluent (or almost fluent!) conversation. However, we are very tolerant of grammatical mistakes and we help each other, as some participants are more fluent than others. Our priority is to keep the conversation lively, friendly and interesting. The group is full for the time being.

Dates: Weekly from 18 Feb. to 31 Mar.
Time: 10.30am - 12 Noon
Venue: Private house, Chislehurst.
