French MeetUp

An evening of French conversation

At the pub...

... or online     

The evening is open to everyone who wants to practise or to speak French, from beginners to native French speakers from France or any other French-speaking country.

This is an opportunity to meet people and discuss issues in French, but a little bit of franglais is fine if needs be.

Idiomatic expressions are an integral part of French culture. The use of these expressions adds variety and enriches the language. They are a very popular, imaginative, and vivid way to convey a message in French.

Mark, one of our French Meetup participants, will talk about these idioms in an interesting and entertaining way.

The evening is open to anyone who speaks French, from beginners to native speakers. It is a meeting to discuss and meet people in French.  

The meeting begins at 7:30 pm sharp – but the Zoom chat room will be open from 7.10pm. Please do arrive on time. You must register on the Meet-up site to get the Zoom link.

Soirée au paramount - french meet up group

Let's meet between 7:30pm and 11pm, speak French and have a few drinks. Food is available to order for those that wish it.

We are a mixed ability group open to all standards of French speakers from the native to the beginner. Though we welcome all-comers the recommended level to benefit most from this group is GCSE/O-Level or greater for native English speakers.

The mezzanine (or part of it) is reserved for the group. Ask staff behind the bar if you cannot find us.
