French WD40

WD40 is an informal, intermediate level, French language group assisted by a competent and knowledgeable French speaker.

Since the pandemic the group has met, via Zoom, at 10am on the first and third Tuesday of each month for 2 hours. Our sessions consist of two roughly equal parts with a short break at 11 o'clock.

We focus on improving our level of French through a variety of comprehension, pronunciation and conversation exercises, with excursions into grammar and more specialized vocabulary as appropriate. Our abilities vary; our current membership ranging from those who made it to ‘O’ level to those with a degree in French. But we all help each other.

To cover the Zoom subscription we typically pay £10 per ‘term’. Ultimately, the cost depends on the size of the group. In addition, members need to subscribe to the “Rendez-vous” magazine at an annual cost of about £35.

Currently we have 12 members and, given the constraints of Zoom, are probably full. However, if you would like to join us please contact Alan Payne on 418749 or by email at French WD40 and we will put you on the waiting list.
