Convenors: Damaris Barnes and Catherine Abery


We aim to meet in members' homes from 14:00 - 16:00 on the first and third Monday of each month, but we sometimes change the days / dates to fit in with the availability of our tutor or is a meeting falls on a Bank Holiday Monday.

The group is for those who have studied French in the past to at least ‘O’ level and wish to improve their conversational and listening skills, gaining the confidence to use French in everyday situations. At present, we use the book Living French together with worksheets provided by our tutor to consolidate points of grammar and use of the language.

Our programme includes group discussions, translations, role play, word games, reading articles in French, grammar exercises and the use of appropriate TV programmes. Having recently acquired a new tutor, who comes to some of our sessions, our programme is under review.

This group has vacancies
