This group take pleasure in speaking French while studying the literature and culture of France. They actively follow news and current affairs in the French-speaking world on websites such as the daily Paris newspaper Le Monde, and the weekly magazines l`Express [news] and Le Canard enchaîné [satirical]. This, together with the reading of books such as Jean de Florette, enables the group to discuss salient points of French grammar and day to day idiomatic speech.
