This group runs weekly during school terms, though not everyone can make it every week! We cover basic French grammar, pronunciation and phrases suitable for travellers – topics such as introductions, family, eating and drinking, getting about, accommodation etc.
We do lots of simple phrases and question and answer drills – greetings, what’s your name, do you have grandchildren, ordering a coffee etc – and have had a hilarious time trying to rote–learn numbers! The Beginners group uses the 15 Minute French book – that is, you’re supposed to practise for 15 minutes a day, but I’m sure most are far too busy for that, enjoying other U3A activities.

Not everyone can attend every Monday but try to pick up where they left off with help from others, and that’s OK.

Note: as this is the second year for this group we are not taking new members; 10 are currently enrolled. “
