Torbay

French for Beginners

Eiffel Tower

Leader: Karen Daly

When: Fortnightly at 10.30 am

Where: Royal Hotel, 31 Babbacombe Downs Road, Torquay TQ1 3LQ

Starting Tuesday March 15th 2022

We are a group of 8 - 10 people who meet at the Royal Hotel Babbacombe fortnightly on Tuesdays. Conversation is very basic, so there is also some teaching of vocabulary and grammar, listening to songs and reading basic texts. We aim to have fun while learning and participants are encouraged to use some of the many free online resources to learn at home.

The group is currently full, but enquiries are always welcome, and if there is enough interest, we might set up a more advanced group.

Here are just a few of the many online resources available for learning French :

Youtube Easy French : short, simple interviews with people on the streets of Paris
