English Conversation Club
10 Rue Servandoni 75006 Paris
The Idea: In our foreign language studies, at school or at home, most of us have learnt the grammar rules, vocabulary and even pronunciation, but very often, we don’t have the chance to practise speaking and listening in real life situations. The idea of the conversation club is to give members this opportunity, by discussing interesting and current topics, in small, informal groups, such as the place of France in the European community, alternative energy forms, immigration, favourite holiday destinations, etc. These are just a few suggestions out of hundreds of possibilities, including your own. There are also sometimes videos and guest speakers to add to the variety.
The « teacher »: Despite an English teaching qualification (RSA Cambridge Certificate of Teaching English to Adults quite a mouthful !) and lots of classroom and private teaching experience, your teacher in the conversation club is not a teacher but rather a facilitator or guide, with occasional corrections, vocabulary where necessary, (with spelling if desired), and answers to any questions (relating to the English language !)
When and Where: Really central, in the 6th arrondissement, between St Sulpice church and the Luxemburg gardens (metro St Sulpice, Mabillon or Luxemburg; there is rather expensive underground parking at Place St Sulpice), meetings take place in the Mundolingua Museum of Language, Languages and Linguistics.
Your membership entitles you to come and go any time on Monday and Wednesday between 7pm and 9pm
You can come from 1 hour per month to 4 hours per week, as you wish, and as it suits you.
Enrolment: Come along to one of the sessions the first one that suits your timetable and if you like the idea, you can join by paying 100 Euros for the month. You are then free to come and goas you please during the sessions for the full month.
