French - Language (Beginners)
The French group started about 3 years ago and has been following a course aimed at adult beginners. This covers 2 books entitled Facon de Parler complete with CDs to aid comprehension and pronunciation.
We have completed Book 1 and have just started the second book. When we finish Book 2 there is an intermediate French course in the same series which we might consider for the more ambitious.
We have 7 students and, although we meet only once a month, there is scope for our members to do homework and private studies in between meetings. The size of the group lends itself to meeting comfortably in one of our member's home and there is therefore no cost involved either to the group or to U3A Widney.
The group meets on the first Monday of each month at 10.00am and Martin Cooke acts as Co-ordinator and Mentor, guiding us through the course.
