French WD40

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

The group, typically numbering 8 - 12 of us, meets on the first and third Tuesday of each month for 2 hours in the Coach Room. The meeting consists of two roughly equal parts organized around a break at 11. New members are most welcome. Abilities vary, our current membership ranges from those who made it to ‘O’ level to those with a degree in French but we all help each other.

Meetings 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. In support of this, we each subscribe to “Rendez-vous” magazine.

Members typically pay £10 per ‘term’ which covers room rental and essential teaching materials. Ultimately, the subscription depends on the size of the group.

The last session before the summer break and the last before Christmas are abandoned in favour of a social event.
