Activities | French Conversation

J'adore parler français

Mastering French is the pleasure of learning a beautiful, rich, melodious language, often called the language of love. French is also an analytical language that structures thought and develops critical thinking, which is a valuable skill for discussions and negotiations.

Group Size

The group is limited to a maximum of 8 members as the group meets in the Group Leader's house. This is a benefit as we find that a smaller number is better for interactive discussions. We also use french dictionaries and reference material to get both syntactical accuracy and common usage.

Foreign Languages

A study conducted by University College London has showed that learning other languages alters our grey matter. It improves the way your brain works in the same way exercise builds muscles. It has been shown that learning a new language creates new neuron growth at any age.

Group Leader's comments

"The group is energetic and it is good fun, especially when we make mistakes. Whether you want to improve your French for your holidays, business, or friends abroad, you will find this group really helpful. What ever you know you can share with others. The discussions can illuminate the language just by hearing the different points of view. If you love French this is the group for you."
