Welcome to the Club de Francais


For people interested in France, it's language and culture

About us

The Club de Français de Cardiff was founded in 1978 for all those interested in France, its people and culture. Adults learning French are especially welcome and while we try to give opportunities for those attending to speak French, it is not essential to be fluent in the language. The talks are for the most part in French, but speakers are reminded that we are students of the language and asked to speak slowly, use uncomplicated language and use illustrations if possible.

Meetings, except where stated, will take place fortnightly on Friday evenings in the Memorial Hall, Lon Ucha, Rhiwbina, Cardiff. There is free parking at the site.. The meetings commence at 7.15pm with the first 30 minutes devoted to general conversation, preferably in French, followed by a talk, ordinarily in French, lasting about 30 minutes. If you would like further information, please phone the Secretary, Shirley Parsons, 01656 861652, or e-mail: club-de-francais@hotmail.co.uk.
