The Association des Amis offers French conversation for those taking French classes, with small groups of English speakers working with one French speaker for this activity. Catherine is assisted by some French-speaking volunteers who help with these classes.
These groups are seen as an aid to give English speakers the confidence to converse in French outside classes in "the real world".
The re-organisation of French courses into 6 groups instead of 4 on Monday mornings and Tuesday afternoons means that French conversation has moved to a different time. Most of the time, French conversation will take place at the French-speaking volunteers' home. These are mainly French people but also include some English speakers with a very good knowledge of the French language. Each group consists of a maximum of 4 English speakers of roughly the same standard. The groups are independent and meet on days and times that suit both the French-speaking volunteers and the students.
At the moment, there are 15 French-speaking volunteers.
If you are French or if you master the French language perfectly and wish to meet and make friends with English speakers who live in the region of Callac, while helping them to improve their French, Catherine will be happy to welcome you onto her team of friendly volunteers.

Due to the new lockdown period most of our French conversation groups had to stop for a while unfortunately. Two or three of the groups decided to turn to video conferences, hoping to meet face-to-face again whenever the health situation improves.
These photos show one of the groups having a conversation about some of their photos.
