Leader: Richard Trendall
We are a small group, 8 people max, who meet once a month for two hours. We try to keep all of our conversation in French, exchanging news, reading and translating a book and discussion of a topic advised in advance. We are not beginners but have been studying together for a few years, and we normally undertake some reading or preparation between meetings. This is an ideal group for anyone who frequently visits France and wants to improve their conversation, or who has more than a basic knowledge of French and wants to build on it.
Six of us have continued to meet zooming. We tell each other what has been going on in the previous month and then reading and translating a text taking it in turns to choose one. We enjoy doing this and think we are improving our French. We could welcome a new member.
It is hoped that we will be able to return to meeting inside or at least in the garden very soon.
