Group Update

Great progress has been made by the group since its start in early November.

Each week we’re learning lots of new vocab, expressions and (dare I say it?)…. verbs, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

We’re presently concentrating on food and drink and how to get by in French cafe’s and restaurants.

Bon appétit!
