Atour du livre

The Institut français offers regular activities and classes for book lovers:

  • Groupe de lecture: Once a month, the group meets up to discuss—in French—a couple of books selected in advance (from classical to contemporary French literature) and discovers the other members’ views on them.

Meetings take place at the Institut français, every last Thursday of the month from 12.15pm to 1.15pm.

The discussion is held in French. A minimum C1 level is strongly recommended.

The Groupe de Lecture is open to members of the Institut francais d’Ecosse only. Admission is free but number of places is limited. To sign up, please fill in the registration form and send it to library ifecosse.org.uk.

  • Literature workshop: a weekly French class designed for those who wish to broaden their knowledge of French through studying contemporary literary works.

Class takes place on Saturdays from 11.45 to 1.15pm from 21 April to 30 June and is open to Students with a C2 level.
