After meeting on Zoom for many months now, we managed a face to face meeting in a garden! And it was dry! Many were unable to come due to holidays and appointments and we missed seeing you. We shared ideas about the future of the group and hope to meet at JGC if permitted in September. We also did a jumbled words game in Spanish.

A social has been planned for 10th August chez Ann Murray and those in the group need to contact Liz to say if you can come and bring a drink/nibbles to share please.

After many months on Zoom it will be great to move on to proper meetings, if we are able to, obviously in a safe as possible way. I would also like to know if any existing members of the group want to opt out of it, and if anyone new wants to come and join us, you are welcome.

We had a month off in may so were pleased to see each other for our June Zoom. It had seemed a long time. A big thank you to Phil and to Sue and John for their great sketches in Spanish, which we all enjoyed. Well done for that. We were looking at Covid situations in Spanish.

It was so good to see Liz return too after her long illness.

The main thing we are lacking is more practice and conversation, so on 8th July we shall hope for good weather to meet in reality face to face!!!! This will be in Ann’s garden or the nearby playing field, depending on numbers. We will have a chat about our future plans. Please bring a chair and a drink. I will email out to the group again with my address.

Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts!!!

Our April zoom meeting was fairly well attended and the sudden disappearance of the Tedstones part way through caused much speculation!! However, on that windy day, it was all hands to the pump to rescue the gazebo! This caused much amusement, as you can imagine.

We talked about the wordsearch and definitions first, then continued with the next episode of our drama Mi Vida Loca. This was followed by a short look at coronavirus vocab on Butterfly Spanish by our Ana, a favourite with Mark. We are all finding Spanish quite challenging and feel sure some months on a beach in Spain would help considerably!

We are not zooming in May but having a break for a month, so our next meeting will be on Thursday, 10th June, 2021 at 10.30 am. At present this will be on zoom but if in person you will be contacted. Here’s hoping for warmer weather!

Our Zoom in March began our first session in our course on Spanish. We revised some vocabulary and revisited the Mi Vida Loca drama we are following. I think most of us were pleased to revise!! We shall continue with this drama on Thursday, 8th April, 2021 at 10.30 am.

The only problem is that the drama is set in Spain and gives us all holiday withdrawal symptoms. But a nice reminder too of how halcyon those lockdown free days were. Let us hope there will be more at some point in the future. Meanwhile, we hope for sunshine and garden days to help us along! As always, if you wish to join our group, you are welcome.

Our February meeting was the last of this session on French. We had a lovely meeting and shared pieces we had composed about our imaginary day at work or leisure. It was such an encouragement to see how people were developing in their spoken language skills, so well done all. We also answered questions orally in French on a magazine article about Celine Dion; showing again the development of understanding.

Our next meeting will be Thursday 11th March at 10.30 am on Zoom and we shall be starting back on our Spanish sessions. We will begin with some revision of our drama Mi Vida Loca.

We hope to see you then. The usual zoom ID applies and I will send out a reminder nearer the time. Keep safe and hopefully many will have been vaccinated by now.

Liz and Ann xx
