Elspeth CardyThe group meets to practise and improve its French in an informal friendly supportive atmosphere.

Group Coordinator: Elspeth Cardy

The group meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month from 2.30-4.00pm

We meet in my home in Barnsbury.

We will aim to maximise the opportunities for everyone to speak. We may use texts, articles and group interests as a prompt for discussion, and will practise our French through the use of presentations,  questioning and exercises, according to the group's interests (maybe plays, films, books, TV programmes, hobbies, etc.). Vocabulary, verbs and their tenses, accent will be corrected when necessary. Everyone in turn will be then invited to ask questions — in French of course — on the topic presented. Members of the group are encouraged to speak and not to be too preoccupied about making mistakes — although you do need reasonable knowledge of French and confidence to speak as this is an intermediate level conversation group.

However, I like to think that the atmosphere will be friendly and informal.

If you would like to join the group click on the link above (ie my name). I will then respond to let you know if there is space in the group or not.
