THE LA MAMA DINNER PRIZE

Monday, February 11th, 2013
Groups are asked to send a photo and short description of how they operate. There is a draw of entrants, and the prize – a dinner at the famous La Mama Pizzeria!
The newly formed French evening group was the winner for 2012.

LES PAPILLONS D’AFRIQUE is a mixed group of charming, chatty and lively ladies (guys are invited, but don’t seem to cope with the pace) that are trying to improve their French language knowledge ….. mainly on the verbal side !!! New members as well as some new ideas are always welcome.  We meet every second Wednesday evening from 18h30 to 21h00 at alternating homes where the hostess supplies a little snack. At the moment we are reading and practicing from a school book. All done at a very easy-going level – everybody adds their bit of knowledge, be it pronunciation – translation – grammar or just general knowledge.  We always have fun und leave feeling good which might also be due to the red wine. Obviously it is not only theory we try to practice, but also a bit of French ‘savoir vivre’.   Au revoir et à bientôt
