Our group is quite informal in its make-up, we have a small number of regular members plus an occasional visitor from Lewes U3A and a couple who spend their summers in Brighton and winter in the south of France in Nice.


We have only one rule and that is to try to avoid speaking English between 10am and 12 noon on the alternate Thursdays when we meet. Over coffee and biscuits we talk about whatever comes to mind and help each other out with grammar and/or vocabulary as appropriate. The important thing is to remember to be flexible and try not to overcomplicate what we want to say. It's quite amazing to consider the range of topics we have covered, from current affairs to the latest books we've read or a recent theatre/cinema visit we've enjoyed.


In past years we have hosted a group from Nice during the Brighton Festival with assistance from Lewes and Brunswick U3As. It's a great group to be in and we have fun whilst improving our spoken French.
