    My thanks to everyone I spoke to for their patience with my efforts at speaking French. Enjoyed my first meeting and looking forward to being able to attend future events. Also my thanks to the organizers without whom the meeting would not take place.

    I enjoy meeting the group every time I join it and yesterday particularly. I was impressed by the French level of some non French people! Conversation was very interesting.

    strong winds and rain prevented a lot of people from coming. dommage. but some bravely cycled !
    A shame that several reverted to speaking in English in spite of reminders and their fluent French. Some others had come from a distance with the object of speaking for the whole evening in French which is after all our reason for having ploughed through in severe January weather.
    However , over all it was fun and , hopefully enjoyed by all.
    Monica at the Jam Factory had given us a large room exclusively for our use. Very good of her, I will email her our thanks today.

      Hi Simone. I really enjoyed myself last night, was really impressed by the level of everyone's French and will definitely come again! Thanks very much for organizing. I must admit however that I don't much care for the tone of this message and should perhaps point out - presuming you are referring to our end of the table - that the vast majority of conversation was indeed in French and when we spoke English it was mostly to explain slang or other words that weren't familiar to everyone. Sorry if it seemed otherwise. See you next time!

    Désolée aussi d'avoir raté (encore une fois). Je dois avouer que je me suis déjà trempée cet après midi et, désechée enfin (sans parler du temps qu'il me fallait pour dégeler) quand j'écoutais le vent qui maintenant augmentait la pluie, j'ai trouvé que le courage de sortir me manquait .

    A la prochaine... et/ou le printemps

    Sorry, just waited 15 mins for a bus , which was cancelled, and the prospect of another 20 -inute wait was too chilling. J'espère que vous aurez une soirée agréable. À la prochaine!

    Hi, I'm very new to meetup, my French is 'ropey' at best but I'm keen to learn more and meet some new people. I am by no means fluent but can make basic conversation. How appropriate is this group for me? Many thanks

      Hi Alex. Don't worry! My French isn't great yet either!! Jon.
