West Lothian 50+ Network – French Cafe

French Cafe

Group Leader: Lorna Kerwin
Meet: Tuesday evening 7.00 – 8.30pm in West Lothian 50+ Office

The aim of the group is to meet in an informal setting over a cup of coffee (or tea) to practise speaking the French we know and to become more confident in doing that. We also help each other with new vocabulary and grammar points, and with the help of a native French speaker, Francoise. We talk about our own interests, whatever we have been doing, or whatever is topical, or sometimes we work in themes, e.g.travel, in the home, etc.

We play games, e.g. Happy Families, Twenty Questions, or do quizzes and have a laugh! We also have links with Bathgate Twinning Association and have practised our French with visitors from Cran-Gevrier. Some of us have gone to visit them in France and had the opportunity to speak French in a real-life situation.
