French Conversation

Convenor:   Mick Bailey   Phone: 01633 869580

Meetings:   Fridays, 11.30 - 1.00

We chat in French, but sometimes drop into English despite the convenor's cries of "En francais, s'il vous plaît, madame/monsieur!"

No syllabus, no formal instruction. Lots of merriment. Attendance 4 to 12, with wide range of competence and experience.

Unfortunately Denise, our only French person, has had to return to France, so we no longer have a genuine French model. Nevertheless we are battling on with our usual vigour. None of us are deluded enough to aspire to perfection at our time of life!

What probably distinguishes our group from those in other U3As is the issuing of Brownie points to those who can tell a Moineau domestique from an Accenteur mouchet. (The convenor is a birdwatcher.) In other respects we are a pretty normal bunch.

Why don't you join us? We'll let you sit and listen until you feel at home enough to speak, if that's what you want.
