Fun with Languages group begin Italian

We made a great start to our Fun with Languages group for 2018 with most of the original members present and we welcomed three new ones too. We began with the first of three sessions on Italian. We learnt how to meet and greet each other and introduce ourselves.
We viewed the relevant clips from the internet, even though the computer did its usual ‘playing up’ scenario. And we went on to learn some basic numbers and complete, or almost complete, a challenging number wordsearch.
We all enjoyed the session and look forward to the next one on Hotels and Directions on Thursday 8th Feb. at 10.30 in the Byron Suite at JGC. See you there! Please remember your £5.00 subs please this month. Thank you.
Best Wishes,
Liz Attenborough & Ann Murray

Christmas Revelries and New Beginnings

We had a great time at the presentation meeting on 13th December and this was followed on the 14th by our trip to the German market in Birmingham. We enjoyed tasting the Gluhwein and other goodies, and seeing the huge array of stalls. We also enjoyed a tour around Birmingham taking in the Edwardian tearoom, a lovely carol service by the conservatoire choir and an enjoyable walk along Brindley place and the Mailbox, followed by a meal at Cafe Rouge. Ann’s mistletoe cause much comment on the return train journey home and great fun was had by all who managed to come at a busy time of year.
Our January meeting is on Thursday 11th at 10.30 at JGC. We begin Italian.
Happy New year to all.
Ann and Liz

Fun with Languages Go Spanish!

Our October meeting was learning about Spanish food and drink; how to order a meal in a restaurant and drinks at a bar. We then enjoyed eating some Spanish food very much!
Our November meeting will be on the 9th in the John Godber Centre and we will be practising for our presentation at the December U3A meeting. All members are please urged to attend.
The 14th Dec is our trip to Birmingham German market. If others wish to join us, please purchase your train ticket for the 11.41 train to Birmingham from Nottingham. Come back on your choice of train. Some of us are enjoying more of Birmingham, having a meal and returning later. If you need any further information on this speak to Ann/Liz at the U3A meeting.
New members are always welcome.

Fun with Languages

We continue to meet second Thursday in the month 10.30 till 12 noon in JGC Byron Suite. We are into our Spanish sessions and had a successful first one in August learning pronunciation, greetings and introductions. After some fun and games with the internet, we managed to see the programs for the course which are always helpful for our conversation confidence!!
In September we are having our first cheese and wine evening which the group is looking forward to. We have wines purchased in France to start us off!!
New members are always welcome and back copies of missed languages are available.
Ann and Liz.
