Here are some of the topic areas we cover:

  • French media, culture, lifestyles, family and relationships
  • Current affairs such as the latest film craze or a political crisis
  • Contemporary social and environmental issues.

There is a dedicated weekly conversation class with a native French speaker.

Class discussions are always good as they encourage everyone to talk and join in and express their own opinion.
