Les Moyens (Intermediate) French group meets weekly during school term time at the home of one of its members. The group encourages all members to contribute, particularly in terms of spoken French. To this end, most weeks, each group member is invited to give a short talk describing their activities during the previous week, a subject of particular interest or an account of a particular place, museum, book, play etc.

The group also attempt to keep up with events in France through the medium of the magazine Rendez-Vous which in addition to covering items of interest has articles designed to improve the use of spoken French as well some grammatical explanations. The magazine is accompanied by an audio disc speaking the magazine text. Group members are expected to buy their own copy of the magazine (about £35 per year).The group leader provides the audio disc.

Approximately once per year the group attempts to take advantage of Brittany Ferries’ special offer prices for a day trip to Cherbourg.
