Practise and improve your French
by joining the
Bradford French Circle.

Bienvenue au cercle français!

We’re a keen group of mixed abilities, with an abiding interest and passion for the language, culture and peoples of the French-speaking world.

Our Thursday evening meetings (7.30 to 9.pm) alternate  between  conversation , and talks and presentations in French given by outside speakers or by group members.

Perhaps you visit France on holiday, be lucky enough to have a property in France, simply want to brush up your school French, or you may be a student wanting to complement your French studies- (full-time students  come  free !)

Come and join us – you’ll be made very welcome.

A bientôt !

This is not a French course nor do we give French lessons as such. Learning and improvement comes naturally as week by week you encounter the spoken language in conversation in a social setting or from entertaining guest speakers.

Many find this style of learning more effective and far more enjoyable than a formal French course or lessons.

The Circle is my little bit of France.

It’s the opportunity to converse freely in French that I just love.

I joined the Circle at the start of 2015, which has really helped get my French going again. It’s a friendly group of people and the sessions are very varied. 

People contribute as much as they feel comfortable doing.

On my first visit I felt completely at ease and everyone was really welcoming.

We learn something every week, but above all we have a laugh and enjoy ourselves.

Some Common Questions:

When & where do you meet?

The French Circle meets weekly on Thursdays from 7:30 to 9pm at:

10 Eldon Place, Manningham Lane, Bradford, West Yorkshire. BD1 3AZ.

Bradford Circle for Foreign Languages

10 Eldon Place, Manningham Lane,

Bradford, West Yorkshire. BD1 3AZ.

Hope to see you soon!

My French is very basic can I still join?

Absolutely! We welcome and cater for all abilities. The aim is to maintain and develop language skills. Some people prefer to just listen until they are confident enough to join in… that is absolutely fine. Mistakes and getting it wrong is how we improve most.

Do I have to commit to every week?

Come as often or as little as you wish.

Will I be the only newcomer?

We constantly welcome new members and make sure they settle in. The atmosphere is very informal.

I don't live near Bradford, can I still come?

Of course. We think it’s worth travelling for. The Bradford Circle For Foreign Languages is the only group of it’s kind in the UK. We have been featured on TV and members travel from far and wide (even Lancashire) and from all across West Yorkshire to take advantage of the Circle’s unique benefits.
