Le Rosbif – informal French conversation group
Fancy improving/keeping up your French? It doesn’t matter what level you are, you will be very welcome. This is not a class, so complete beginners might find it boring (but are still welcome to come for a drink!). Usually people chat in pairs/groups, discussing anything of mutual interest: a recent holiday, a French/Belgian film or TV series they’ve seen or even the weather. However, you don’t have to discuss France or anything French – the key thing is to try to communicate only in French! Contact: Fiona Winfield: email@example.com

It took a day for our Garden Club team to do the planting. We think we have created the largest hanging basket in the east Midlands!” … Read More
