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".
Because of the current situation and the difficulty for everyone to know how it will develop in the future, the Association Des Amis and its volunteers are trying to find solutions to continue with both French courses and French conversation whatever the evolution.
The re-organisation of French courses into 6 groups instead of 4 on Monday mornings and Tuesday afternoons means that French conversation will have to move 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.
If there were another period of lockdown at some point in the future, some groups may decide to continue French conversation on the internet with video conferences.
Each group will consist of a maximum of 4 English speakers of roughly the same standard. The groups will be independent and will 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.
