Current Group Status: FULL

We meet on the first and third Tuesday in the month from 2.30 to 4.3Opm. in membersí homes. Each member of the group prepares a short talk based on personal experiences such as holidays, visits to concerts, the cinema, theatres or art exhibitions, an aspect of current affairs or an article of interest often related to France. After each topic there is open discussion which is completely spontaneous as we do not know in advance what members will decide to talk about. We note useful phrases and specialist words which arise in order to expand our vocabulary.

At our Christmas meeting we arrive with food and wine, read French poetry and sing French carols. We hold a joint celebration on Bastille Day (July 14 ) with Group one when we invite husbands and wives to join us at a party where we provide the ingredients for a French meal starting with a glass of kir. We take part in quizzes and round off the evening with a rousing rendition of La Marseillaise.

At present our group is full but if you are interested in joining us, phone me and I will contact you as soon as a place becomes available.
