Conversation sessions


Informal conversation

Our secretary had the excellent idea to introduce informal French conversation sessions in the pub, late morning. The first on took place in early November 2017 at the Dairyman in Brentwood High Street, and it is now an established monthly event.

We soon outgrew the table in the Dairyman and after flirting with a couple of venues in the town we have now settled on Brentwood Library.  Keep an eye on this page for more information.

The meetings fluctuate between Wednesday and Thursday each month but always at 10.30


Next Meeting

Our next conversation morning will be on

Thursday 6 November
between 10.30 and 12noon
in the Coffee Shop in Brentwood Library

£1 per head in order to deefray the costs of hiring the library space.

Coffee is available.

All are welcome, where or not you are members of the Association or not and whqatever the level of your French.  French speakers will be on hand to help you.

We look forward to seeing you there!


Conversation evenings

We had our first conversation evening in December 2012, and it proved a great success! For this first event in a hopefully long series, participants brought a dish or some food that says “French”; we were therefore lucky enough to sample a wide variety of French food, such as homemade ratatouille, quiches and fruits tarts, pâtés, saucisson, cheeses.

The idea is just to have a chat in French with other members, and gain confidence in practising the language, in a relaxed atmosphere around a drink and nibbles.

All levels are welcome and we try to organise one every quarter.

It is free and details will be made available to members for each evening. For more information, please contact
