Our meeting in March went well and we revisited Spanish pronunciation by following a Youtube link which was fun and informative. We continued with looking at the basic vocabulary and grammar for the first two episodes in a new drama we are undertaking, based in Madrid. This proved a popular choice so we shall press on with Mi Vida Loca and see what happens next!!

Please do not attend the group if you have traveled abroad at all and the U3A directive is that groups must close if that includes anyone. If people self isolate and inform us, we may still be able to continue, depending on numbers and how things proceed with the Coronavirus. It is a daily changing scenario and we must do all we can to stay safe, well and look after each other through this difficult and challenging time.

If we can meet, we will on Thursday 9th April at 10.30 am in John Godber Centre when we shall continue with the next installment of our drama. I hope to see you all then. New members are welcome.

January was our last (for the moment) of four sessions on French. We had a great time performing role plays on buying and comparing supermarkets and markets; and collecting ingredients for meals. Well done everyone, you worked hard on those and have made superb progress. We also completed a wordsearch on food items.

Our meal at French Living was greatly enjoyed, but marred a little for some with transport problems due to Clifton bridge repairs. However, the meal went well and many thanks to Liz for organising that.

Our next meeting is on Thursday 12th March 10.30 am until 12 noon at John Godber Centre. We begin the first of four sessions on Spanish. New members welcome.

It was great to meet up again after Christmas. We are looking forward to our meal out at French Living on 7th February and Liz has all the arrangements.

Our January meeting continued with French and our course Ma France. We watched and discussed two videos on shopping in the market and the supermarket and talked about the advantages and disadvantages with these two types of places. We completed some games and began to write short role plays on shopping.

The role plays will be completed and performed at the next meeting on Thursday, 13th February, 2020 at the John Godber Centre at 10.30 am. This will be our last French session for a few months and March we shall pick up the sessions on Spanish.

New members are welcome and help provided. To anyone who has been ill or who still is I hope you have a speedy recovery and we look forward to seeing you next session.

Our December session progressed with videos on Directions using Ma France. We enjoyed the craziness of finding the hotel and the Activities (when we finally found them!!) Scoring was not too bad!

We had our Christmas nibbles and then some karaoke to Sacha Distel and others, courtesy of Phil Nathan.

Our January meeting will be on 9th January, 2020 in the John Godber Centre at 10.30 am. Newcomers are always welcome to join us. Happy New Year!

Our meeting on 14th November was well attended and we did some hard learning on regular and irregular verbs. We next started a new BBC course we are following and this was well received – especially the games section!!

We decided to give the presentation event a miss this year as time for practice overtook us. Also a little lack of inspiration!

Our next meeting will be on Thursday December 12th at the John Godber Centre 10.30 am till 12 noon. We shall continue a little with our new course, but also leave time for song and our Christmas nibbles!

A very happy Christmas and a healthy New year to one and all!
