French

The main aim of all three current groups is to improve members’ fluency in French through conversation. All members have studied French either at school or later in life. Unfortunately, at the present time, there is no provision for beginners but if there is sufficient interest and someone volunteers to lead a new group specifically for those who are completely new to the language, they will receive support from existing group leaders.

In the meanwhile, there are excellent resources online to help French language novices at Open University Beginners French courses.

FRENCH CONVERSATION 2

THIS GROUP IS CURRENTLY SUSPENDED AS THE CURRENT LEADER CAN NO LONGER CONTINUE IN THE ROLE.

FRENCH CONVERSATION 3
There is no teaching involved and most of us have studied French to a minimum of O-level or similar standard. We use presentations, role play and general conversation as tools to build confidence that we may have lost over half a century or so of little or no use of the language.

Time10:00 - 12:00
