Conversation Group

There are two locations where french conversations are held, by two different group leaders and at different days & times as detailed below.

Location1: English Library

The English Library group meet now on Fridays at the library between 14H00 – 16H00

Marité ( left) is French and Margaret (Right) is English they both support a casual fun conversation group for small talk and useful general functional french.

Marité and Margaret are good friends who feel there is a need for more people to help impart  the local culture and language. There is no pressure to join in you can come along and sit and just listen and learn.

To join the Group, you would need to be a Library member.  Just pop into the Library and pay the equivalent of €2 a month.

The atmosphere is friendly for both groups and everybody helps one another. Everyone makes mistakes but trying to communicate without feeling foolish or afraid is the key to learning.

€4 is collected for use of the facilities, Coffee &  biscuit included.

Contact Margaret using the form below for any further information.

Location2: French Library

The French library group meet on the top floor of the library –  the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Tuesday of each month. Each meeting will now take place between 15H30 – 17H00.

The French Library (Médiathèque René, Chatreix) is next to the Eden cinema. Due to popular demand, the meetings have been extended to three times a month,  the sessions are completely informal and involve conversations in French and English on a variety of subjects. There is no cost involved, no formal leader and no obligation to attend.  As it is not really possible to obtain enough conversation practice with only three sessions a month, people are encouraged to team up and meet each other more regularly and many friendships have resulted from this.
