French Film Group:

We continue to meet once a month at Feock Church Hall to watch a varied selection of French films. We finished the year on a light note with ‘Rien à déclarer’, a comedy based on 2 customs officers having to come to terms with BREXIT. The January selection ‘l’étudiante et M. Henri’ was an endearing and funny study of how to bridge the gap between different generations.
Not all cinema fans who come along are French speakers as all the films have English subtitles. So, come along, the chairs are comfy and the films always very enjoyable; so people tell me!

The next film is on February 18 at 4 P.M.

French for Beginners?:

We have some members seeking to join a beginners' class to study French at an initial level. Is there a competent member who might be able to lead such a class of beginners out there? Contact initially with John Skelton on (01872) 865316 if you could be interested!

French Reading Group

We have three or four members who would like to start a French reading group and would like to hear from anyone who would be interested in joining them. The idea would be to meet monthly, probably in Devoran, and to discuss the chosen book also in French. If you are interested please contact Berra Brooker on 01209 697243.

Hablemos Español:

The Spanish conversation group meets every Thursday for Spanish chat and language learning, varied by trips this year to tapas restaurants, cafe polyglot in Falmouth and even a Spanish play.   Members of the group take it in turns to host meetings and plan the session - with the emphasis on having fun while trying to speak Spanish throughout our time together!
