Fun with Languages

We began this group of Italian sessions with some revision from our last Italian class, which all of us needed and appreciated!! We welcomed a new member and we are always happy to do so. We listened to some basic phrases on CD to help us to get into the Italian feel of words and then had a quiz to test our knowledge. Some did better than others! We practised small group conversations to build confidence.

Our next meeting on Thursday 13th June, 2019, will feature clothes and market shopping – always a must on holiday! (at least for the ladies; the gents probably hold onto their wallets!) We also plan to arrange our ideas for a meal etc together. The meeting as usual will be 10.30 till 12 noon in the Byron Suite at John Godber Centre. Hope to see you there!

Weekenders’ Programme

I should be grateful if a member who has not hosted a social evening before might like to volunteer; it’s not a lot of work for the hostess, just provide a lounge and tea and coffee.
