The Book Club is a return to the previous and most appreciated format. Books and a long time between sessions so that you can read them fully and peacefully. The Sessions are mainly focused on discussion and thoughts about the books with the group and the cultural team.

I enjoyed the talk on Friday given by Nicolas.  All praise to him for delivering it in such good English.

Je voulais juste dire que moi aussi j’ai aimé ces petits amuse-bouche de la littérature française donnés au cours du book club en ligne pendant le confinement. C’était d’autant plus agréable que je pouvais y accéder de ma ville à 40 km de Cambridge! Merci Gaël pour vos explications sur les auteurs et les textes.

Merci d’avoir mis en place le Book Club en ligne.  Je trouve que nos séances ont été réussies même chez Zoom, tout le monde a eu l’occasion de participer, même plus peut-être que dans notre situation normale. Le choix de courts morceaux – contes, poèmes – a donné la possibilité de beaucoup de variété dans la même heure, la discussion n’a pas tari, et merci à Gaël de nous avoir fourni tant de mises en scène.

I have been happy with all the teachers we have had and all the subject matter – bottom line for me is that it is French and there is always something to learnI am also very much enjoying the Club de Lecture never having been able before Covid to attend.Gael is very ‘sympa ‘ and knowledgable.
