For Culture: If you would like to get in-depth knowledge about the French culture, you can do so without ever leaving Cambridge. For instance, you can attend the many events organised by the Alliance Fraçaise on Hills Road. This institution aims to encourage and develop knowledge of the French language and culture, and to promote cultural and educational exchanges between France and, in this case, Cambridge. Meanwhile, if you like cinema, you can attend the Ciné Club, held every Tuesday, where you can get together with other people interested in French cinema, watch classic and contemporary films in their original language and, once the film is over, discuss them using the flawless French you learn with us! If you like literature, they also have a book club that works in a similar way.
For Social: Studying French will also give you the chance to connect with other speakers of the language living in Cambridge. Join the Cambridge French Social Meetup, a group of people who get together with the aim of meeting new people locally while practising their French. They get together twice a week at cafes and restaurants, so take advantage of this opportunity to further practise what you learn in your lessons with us! Another option is the InterNations space for French in Cambridge, which bring together expats and people with an interest in learning more about the Francophone language and culture. The Alliance Française also organises a Lunch in French every month. This is a great opportunity not only to try delicious French cuisine but also to socialise with like-minded people using your new language skills.
