FUN WITH LANGUAGES
Our November meeting passed amidst much fun, fear and concentration as we practised hard for the December presentation meeting. It helped to have cake and shortbread to keep things going!

We will have a Christmas drinks and nibbles evening at 9, Wenlock Drive, Hucknall on Monday 11th Dec. at 7.30 to have another practice ready for the presentation meeting on Wednesday 13th December.

On 14th December will be the trip to the Birmingham German market and the train will leave from Nottingham at 10.41am. Meet at Nottingham station in time to catch this if you want to join us.

The next meeting proper will be Thursday January 11th at 10.30 at John Godber Centre in the Byron Suite. We shall start the first of three sessions on Italian.

Have a happy Christmas everyone and a peaceful, healthy New Year.

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.

Fun with Languages German Sessions

The May meeting was the first of our three sessions on German. Resisting the urge to remember the German from time past in comics, we began by simple phrases like Guten tag/ Guten morgen and began to develop vocabulary for everyday usage and how to introduce one’s name. We also explored the names of family members through two short video clips and chatting in small groups.

The next meeting on Thursday 8th June in the Byron suite at JGC at 10.30 till 12 noon, will be on numbers, hotels and directions in town to places of interest.
New members are always welcome to come along and have a taster.

Auf wiedersehen,
Ann & Liz

The group meets on the second Thursday of the month in the Byron Suite at the John Godber Centre between 10.30 and 12.00.

Do you need help with basic phrases when in Europe? This group could help!

We are a conversation based group studying French, German, Italian and Spanish in a light hearted way. Three sessions are devoted to each language so a basic understanding can be gained.
