French Conversation Interest Group

       The French group began  when some members discussed the possibility of forming a French conversational group. Group members take turns planning  meetings.  The members brainstorm at the first meeting in September to begin collecting ideas for future meetings. In the past they have had guest speakers who have spoken in French about various topics which were enjoyed. Members sometimes lead sessions or small excursions can also be planned  within the city as long as these excursions are used as an opportunity to speak French. At one of the meetings, one of the members prepared a raclette which was enjoyed by all. Before the meeting starts, the hostess prepares light refreshments, coffee or wine. 

When: 3rd Monday of the month
Time: 1:00 pm
Where: members homes,occasionally restaurants
Why: improve conversational French

Fun Activities for 2018-2019

French CFUW Interest Group 2018-2019

    As the convenor of the CFUW French interest group for 2018-9, I have been chatting with some of our members to see what various fun activities we might incorporate into our monthly meetings.Our schedule says that we meet on the third Monday of the month at 1:00 pm. However depending on the activity planned, our meeting days and times could be flexible. Some of the planned activities could include male partners. Here is a list of some of the fun activities which have been suggested:

.A French skit
.A French movie
.French pot luck dinner
.Travel video
.French wine and cheese
.Petit Bistro or Amuséein Peterborough
.Trip to Gatineau, or Mount Tremblant - French restaurants, cafes, spa (or other French town)
.Watch French news or a French program the evening before our meeting - discussion
.Dinner at a Restaurant
.Guest French Speaker

Members in the French interest group could choose the planned activities in which they would like to participate. Of course some of our members are away for holidays and might not be available for all our planned activities. Some activities might be of interest to our male friends and husbands and they could be invited to join us. Looks like lots of fun!!! Please send me any other suggestions which I can add to our list. Merci.
 
Our French Interest group welcomes new members.
