The Association des Amis offers French language courses to English-speaking people, who are so numerous in Central Brittany. There is no better way to fit into your host country than to learn the language!
French courses take place in the Kerbuannec building (room 2) in Callac, which is the green building with a lot of windows and glass doors, just after the Kerbuannec gymnasium on the left when you go towards Intermarché.
Lessons are usually held from mid-September to mid-June, roughly thirty sessions altogether during the year.

Because of the current health situation and the difficulty we all have in knowing how it will develop, we are trying to make things easier for French courses and French conversation to continue whatever the evolution.
We have reorganised things and now have 6 groups instead of 4 (3 on Monday mornings and 3 on Tuesday afternoons), each group with a maximum of 10 or 11 students. There are two teachers : Colin Howard for the beginners and Catherine Sinclair for the other groups.
On Monday mornings:
10:00-11-00 : Beginners Plus / Semi-beginners (level 2)
11:00-12:00 : Semi-beginners Plus (level 3)
11:00-12:00 : Beginners (level 1)
On Tuesday afternoons:
13:30-14:30 : Intermediate group (level 4)
14:30-15:30 : Intermediate group Plus / Advanced (level 5)
15:30-16:30 : Advanced Plus (level 6)
Lessons are continuing, taking place over the internet with written documents (including written exercises) and video conferences for oral explanations and questions to the teacher, oral understanding and oral expression.
For 2020-2021 French classes started on Monday 14th September for levels 1, 2 and 3 and on Tuesday 15th September for levels 4, 5 and 6.
New students can be accepted into group 1 (Beginners), group 4 (Intermediate) and group 6 (Advanced Plus) as the other groups have already reached their maximum number.
Anyone interested in starting French courses should contact the Association as soon as possible.
This re-organisation means French conversation was taking place at our French-speaking volunteers' homes. They were welcoming a group of 4 English speakers of roughly the same standard for an hour a week on a day and at a time to suit both the French-speaking volunteer and the students. Since the Autumn lockdown, French conversation has been taking place online as video conference.
