L'Écriture inclusive

Bonjour à toustes!
We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting on Wednesday 14 April at 19:30. Join us for a talk, quiz and interactive discussion on inclusive writing (l’écriture inclusive). If you’ve never heard of it, come and find out what it’s all about. If you have, tell us what you think. The evening will be in French & English.

The event is free for paid-up members of the Cercle français de Belfast. Guests are always welcome, for a small fee of £5 to be paid before the event (send us an email for further details). The Zoom link will be sent to members and registered guests on the morning of 14 April.

For those of you who’d like to find out a bit more in advance, here’s a little something to get you started. Do as much or as little prep as you like:

Renaissance mystery with Ray LARGAN

The next meeting of le Cercle virtuel is on Wednesday 24 March when Ray explores the mysterious death of King Henry II in a jousting contest.  This is an area that Ray is fascinated with and he'll reflect upon whether Henry's death by Gabriel Montgomery was an accident or murder?

And what of the subsequent consequences?


You will be!

If you've got your link we'll see you on Zoom.

À très bientôt !
