Contact details: 0115 9335164 email: shahmugaseth@ntlworld.com

Day and time of meetings: 10 a.m. alternate Tuesdays

Cost: There is no charge for attending our meetings but we do each make a contribution of £1 to cover costs and a termly  “feast”.

What we do : Although we do use a text book (Breakthrough French 1) this is frequently abandoned to pursue general conversation usually based around a specific point of language or something which a member of the group particularly wishes to explore. As members come with a varied experience of language learning and achievement we also attempt to incorporate more open ended activities to enable everyone to practise their language to the full. Social activities add another dimension to the group which has so far provided more than 2 years of fun and friendship, picnics, raclettes, tartiflettes, meals out,  a barbecue , boules ...  and lots of chocolate biscuits.
