French Conversation


We are a small group who speak fairly fluent French.

We don’t worry about grammar as we feel that The aim is to chat for an hour about anything that is of interest. There is no homework or preparation, unless you want to, and we help each other out when we are lost for (French) words.
We don’t worry too much about grammar as we feel that communicating is what it’s all about

We normally meet in the cafeteria of the Open Learning Centre on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday afternoon of the month from 14.00 until 15.00 and there are no costs involved.

If you are not sure whether your French is good enough, please come and try us out. You may be surprised at what you know.


When the first lockdown happened in 2020 we stopped our meetings for a while but later got to grips with Zoom.  We currently have two 40-minute Zoom meetings with a 15-minute break in between and usually manage to fill the time very well.

We hope that when the weather gets better, we’ll be able to meet in person again. As we usually have around seven members at the meeting, we won’t be able to meet indoors for the time being, so we’ll keep going with the Zoom meetings, changing to an outdoor venue whenever weather permits.
