The French Challenge is for DCV men and women, as well as their friends, who are native French speakers or enjoy an opportunity to use the French they have learned. The challenge is to have some fun using French.  The Group meets once a month to discuss issues in French as well as to enjoy French food and drinks, as well as periodic outings together to the theater and restaurants. Each gathering, one member gives a short presentation on a topic that the group selected the previous month, and then general discussions follow on the presentation and such topics as events and travel adventures, things happening in our lives, and French music/songs/poems/plays.

Meetings are held the 4thTuesday of each month from 4:30 to 6:00 pm at Carol Galaty and Ken Shuck's house unless otherwise notified.

(1) Discussion about the history and present status of Mont Saint-Michel by Michelle Lemmon.

(2) Review of the Edith Piaf Retrospective from April 17.

(3) Listening to and discussing the recording of "The Telegram" by Yves Montand (will circulate a document with the words in advance)

Une discussion sur le Mont Saint-Michel par Michele Lemmon et la Sortie à l'Alliance Française pour la Rétrospective Edith Piaf, et

Ecouter et discuter du "télégramme" par Yves Montand (Documents avec des informations sur “Le Telegramme” sont encore attachés séparément.)
