===========================================================================

STOP PRESS
AU SECOURS! (HELP!)
Unfortunately, due to ill health, Veronica Teasdale cannot continue leading Beginners and Intermediate/Advanced French Groups. Would you be interested in taking over either or both? For more information, please contact Veronica on 01531 821321 or send the Group Co-ordinator a message via the Group Co-ordinator link on the main Contact page.

===========================================================================

There are two groups at the moment. The Leader for both groups is Veronica Teasdale, a retired teacher of French and English as a second language. Both groups are held at Veronica's home.

Intermediate and Advanced

  • The French Intermediate/Advanced group meets every two weeks on Fridays at 2.30 (please refer to Diary or check with Group Leader - also see "%" below) and uses selected texts from "Bien-Dire". This is a magazine which supplies contemporary vocabulary via graded articles, entirely in French, on the French way of life.
  • We concentrate on comprehension and discussion, highlighting useful vocabulary and essential grammar points. Written homework is set on occasion!
  • This group is fully subscribed at the moment.

Beginners

  • The French Beginners Group meets every two weeks on Tuesdays at 2pm (Please refer to Diary or check with Group Leader - also see "%" below).
  • We are using the BBC course 'The French Experience" which provides the necessary vocabulary and structures to help you deal with everyday situations. It also outlines interesting aspects of French culture.
  • Please contact Veronica on 01531 821321 if you would like to join this group; spaces are currently available.

Meeting Dates
Please note that Veronica likes to maintain a schedule with both groups in the same week of the month and the second meetings two weeks later regardless of how many weeks there are in each month. If you are interested, you will therefore need to confirm calendar dates for the month with Veronica on 01531 821321.

We have a bring and share lunch at the end of most terms, often with a French film. Of course we have coffee and biscuits and a chat at the end of each session. However, Veronica says she has been known to burn the cakes!
