Students at Alliance Française de Bristol have been learning French through theatre

Come and share with us an evening of games and drama in accessible French!

Tuesday 1st June, 2010
8.30 pm
Comedy Box, above the Hen and Chicken
210 North Street
Bedminster, Bristol, BS3 1JF
£2 at the door

Tuesday 1st June will be the end of a ten-week course, and the evening will give the brave actors/French students a chance to show us what they can do! There'll be a few games with the audience and some short scenes created especially for the occasion.

Simon Fry of Venue commented after last year's event: "Their efforts culminated in the performance of some innovative and amusing role plays before a 50-strong audience, enjoyed immensely by participant and observer alike." There will be time after the show to socialise with the actors. As Simon says, "you may not end up at Cannes, but you'll no doubt be clicking glasses in the bar after a stellar showing."

Why not learn French with us? We offer a variety of French courses. For more info,

A poem written by a tudent taking French lessons at Alliance Française in Bristol

Suzanne had some difficulty coming back to England because of the ash cloud ( le nuage de cendres) from the Islandic volcano ( le volcan islandais), here is what she wrote:

Piegee en Paradis>

je me trouve sur une plage
Au pays du Mexique
Il fait tres beau
La mer est fantastique
Il est impossible de rentrer
En Angleterre
Donc je dois rester
A la station Balneaire
Pourquoi est ce que je suis piegee
On me demande..?
A cause d'un volcan
Tres loin d'ici ,en Islande..

J'espere qu'un jour je puisse
Dormir dans mon propre lit
Mais pour  le temps qui passe..
C'est un sejour au Paradis!...
Par Suzanne , arrivee hier, pour la lecon du Jeudi.

If you have been stuck somewhere because of the ash cloud , please tell us in the comments.... in French......

Learn French in the kitchen with a French tutor and chef at Alliance Française de Bristol

A fantastic way to communicate in French:
Broaden your knowledge of French cuisine
Develop your vocabulary around food
Improve your communication skills in a small group of like-minded students
Take home a delicious dish

One of our students taking French tuition with us who did a cookery workshop with our French tutor wrote afterwards:
This was such an enjoyable experience!  We learned a number of tricks of the trade, increased our culinary vocabulary and shared ideas in French, for new and alternative flavours.
