French Café on November 15

November 15, 2017

You are invited to our next "French Café" on Wednesday, November 15th, at 6:00 P.M, on Kuninga 4. The perfect occasion for you to speak French in a friendly atmosphere! So save the date.

You have notions of French but no partner in Tallinn to practice?
That's why we created our "French Café" sessions.The idea is to meet and have a casual conversation in French, in a friendly atmosphere, while sharing a snack.

Participants are split into 3 groups depending on your level (beginners, intermediate, advanced).
A French-native speaker will lead the conversation around a specific topic : we have already done "travels", "food", "new projects", "music", "cinema"… The perfect occasion for you to improve your french as you will have the chance to speak as much as you want.

To make things easier, you can always prepare a few words beforehand (by watching films for example) or ask to borrow a dictionary on the day.

So save the date :
Wednesday 15 November at 6 P.M.
At the French Institute (Kuninga 4).

You can just turn up (no pre-registration).

And it's free ! We’re waiting for you.
