French Conversation

Improve your French through conversation.

We are not quite like the image but would like to think we are. If you meet us you will find we are a small group with very varied levels of French fluency but are kind and tolerant of each others weaknesses. Any new people will be welcome to join us to decide if we are what you are looking for.

Our meetings will be based on Rendez-Vous magazine, but the following titles may also be used. All are welcome to have a taster. Spare magazine copy can be provided.

Interested in learning or revisiting French? Please let us know so we can look towards setting up an appropriate group.

Pete’s Media Sociale

J’essaie faire amitiés en dehors de “Facebook”, mais en employant les mêmes principes –donc, chaque jour, quand je me promène le long de la rue, je parle aux passants.

Je leur racconte les détails de ce que j’ai mangé aujourdhui, comment je me sens à ce moment-la, comment j’ai passé la soirée hier, et ce que j’ai l’intention de faire plus tard, et avec qui.

Je leur montre des photos de ma famille, de mon chien, et de moi travaillant dans le jardin, travaillant dans le garage, arrossant la pelouse, debout devant bâtiments célèbres, et faisant les activities que tout le monde fait tous les jours.

En plus, j’entends leurs conversations, leur donne le “thumbs up”, et leur dis que je les aime.

Et —-il fonctionne exactement comme “Facebook”! Me suivant, il y a deux agents de police, une journaliste, un pysychologiste, et un détective privé.
