One of our locals and regulars, Mathilde, has come up with the awesome idea of running a conversation cafe from the bar. The idea that people are able to show up and practice French in a relaxed, informal environment which can adapt to suit a wide range of abilities. Mathilde is already a professional French teacher but likes the idea of running something a little less formal in her own town. We ran the first cafe a couple of weeks ago and it was a great success. The francophone soundtrack really added to the continental atmosphere, I could have been on the banks of the Seine!
Everyone is welcome to come along, there is a small charge to cover Mathilde’s time and teas and coffees (or a bit of wine for Dutch courage) are payable seperately.
Upcoming conversation cafes:
Saturday May 16th @ 2.30pm
Wednesday May 27th @ 7pm
Saturday June 13th @ 2.30pm
Wednesday June 24th @ 7pm
A few people have shown interest in something similar for Spanish. If anyone would like to have a bash at organising a Spanish conversation cafe or, indeed, the same thing in any language, do get in touch!
