COCKTAILS & CONVERSATION
Ladies’ Night Out! Each month, we meet on varying evenings at 8pm in different bars around central Bordeaux.

DEJEUNER FRANCAIS
Un déjeuner mensuel où l’on parle exclusivement en français. Françaises ou non sont toutes invitées à participer. L’idée est d’offrir aux non-francophones l’opportunité d’affiner leur français parlé. Les déjeuners ont généralement lieu en semaine (exceptionnellement le weekend) dans des restaurants sur Bordeaux ou chez un membre du BWC (“déjeuner-partage”).

DISCUSSION GROUP
First Monday of each month for one hour of English and one hour of French conversation with tea and cake en plus!
