Calling all French speakers!

I'm learning French at the moment (with daily podcasts) and making some progress. However, I would love some real French conversation.
Are there any French speakers in Lewes who would be happy to meet for maybe an hour a week for a coffee and a (slow!) chat? In return, I can offer some help with English writing (checking or editing emails, letters/website etc).

As Lewes is twinned with Blois in France, might be worth contacting the twinning association to see if they know of people in Lewes who speak fluent French.

What do you means Teachers Pet? They all seem like silly pillocks, and indeed they are.

Try the French girl who works in the lovely little Patisserie 25 yards from the top of Station Street.

DFL - the Normans weren't French. They were Vikings who conquered the area.

Not really Clifford ,they spoke Norman French not a Norse language and in a remarkably short, historical, time had incorporated Early Medieval French Culture.

Well actually Paul, you and Clifford are sort of both right. The vikings did in fact invade and conquer Normandy (Normandy means land of the Nors men), and they stayed and made their home there and took on the customs of the resident peoples at the time. However, most countries of the world have been overrun by other races at one point or another, and the Celts once roamed all of Europe, but they are now confined to Wales, Ireland and Brittany, oh, and a bit of Cornwall. But all said and done, you just can't beat the French for good food and great wines.

The French have great food markets but their restaurants leave much to be desired. I really think the reputation they have for good food doesn't apply below a certain price level. We have had some truly woeful meals in France and paid through the nose for them.

The wine's okay though...

I spent some of the happiest times of my youth either sitting in an English pub, drinking beer and smoking, or in a French bar, drinking wine and smoking. There's a lot to be said for both.
