French and German Society
Welcome to the French and German Society 2018/19!!
Bienvenue and Willkommen to the French and German Society. We are one of the best departmental societies at the university and we are striving to enhance the university experience of everyone who studies French, German or has a passion for the languages and cultures of France and/or Germany. We celebrate all aspects of the French and German culture and offer a wide variety of socials in all shapes and sizes that everyone can enjoy.
Membership costs £4 for one year or £10 for three years! Dependent on availability and popularity, merchandise is available at a fantastic value to make sure you always remember your time with us!
Tickets are now on sale for our Masquerade party, happening on Thursday 7th Feb! With Valentine's day just around the corner, we have joined up with some other societies for a special event as we transform the Walrus Bar into a grand Venetian palace for a night of fun and thrills! Love is in the air, specialty cocktails will be served for the occasion. We have free Venetian masks for everyone as well as themed Valentine's decor around the venue. The afterparty will take us to Pom Pom where there is a free shot for everyone on arrival. Tickets are £5 for members and £6 for non-members, which include your very own mask, a glass of champagne on arrival as well an afterparty entry and a free shot at Pom Pom!
We listened to you and heard that you found speaking to be one of the toughest aspects of the language to keep up; therefore, this year we will be holding regular meet & speaks from 6-8pm, Room A46 Trent building. This is a chance for French and German speakers/lovers/learners/natives- anyone(!)- to come together, socialize and chat with each other in their respective languages. Our next confirmed ones are:
-Weds 30th Jan 2019 (plus free Pizza!)
-Weds 13th Feb 2019
-Weds 27th Feb 2019
-Weds 13th March 2019
-Weds 27th March 2019...so be sure to put those dates in your diary!
Furthermore, we are running a mini film fest throughout February and March, which will intersperse our meet & speak weeks. The film evenings are free and everyone is welcome to join! Films will be announced here at least one week in advance. There will also be subtitles for each film as well as popcorn! Confirmed dates are:
-Weds 6th Feb 2019 (French film)
-Weds 20th Feb 2019 (German film)
-Weds 6th March 2019 (French film)
-Tues 19th March 2019 (German film)
Furthermore, we will also be hosting a range of Future Workshops to talk to language students in their first and second year about their upcoming years abroad, which we think will prove invaluable if you want to get first-hand advice and experience on living in another country!
