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.

January 2021 – Here we go zooming again! This time our meeting was a little chaotic as my share screen was not always happy to share! However, we soldiered on and got there in the end. It was lovely to see lots of people and share our French session on jobs and communications.

Our next Zoom on February 11th at 10.30 am will be our last French of this session.

In March we shall revert back to pick up some Spanish. We shall recap the a day’s work listening to people’s contributions and then go onto our magazine article on Celine Dion.

I hope as many as possible will make it! Keep safe. Ann and Liz.

Well we are here and holding our own as a group despite a challenging 2020. We have sadly lost a few zoomers on the way, which is a shame, but understandable in these circumstances. As yet we do not know what 2021 holds for us, but we hope that things will gradually improve as we get vaccinated and feel more able (and rules allow) to meet in person. Until then we Zoom on.

Our December meeting went well with a variety of new vocabulary and video clips; plus a jolly Xmas French song. We also met for drinks in the evening (on Zoom) and a chat to wish each other a happy Christmas.

Our next meeting on Zoom will be Thursday 14th January 2021 at 10.30 am. I will email out a link and details nearer the time. We continue with French for a few more sessions then we shall take up some work again on Spanish.

May you all have a peaceful, safe and happy Christmas; and those who are ill a healing one!

Love Ann and Lizxx

Our meeting in November went well and we continued with the Ma France course revising directions and places in France; also completing a crossword on French place names. It is great to see many of you zooming but there is always room for more!

Our next meeting of Zoom will be on Thursday 10th December at 10.30 am when we shall continue with Ma France and also play the guess what? xmas items the group are preparing to share. On the 10th December also at 7.00 pm we are having a Zoom drinks and nibbles session for an hour with a game so we can wish each other a happy Christmas. Sadly, you will have to provide your own drinks etc on this occasion!

If you are not into Zooming or are unable to join us, we still wish you and yours a happy and safe Christmastime. We hope we can meet some time during 2021, but we shall have to see how things work out.

Love Liz and Ann xx

Greetings everyone! We hope this finds you well and in as good a heart as possible as we all cope with these challenging Covid 19 days. Our good wishes go out to all those who are struggling with anxiety or other health issues.

We had the last of our Italian sessions for this set on 8th October via Zoom link. It was a more pleasing turn out than last time so well done! And those who have not been on, we miss you. We had a quiz on Italy kindly led by Liz; and then we looked at the Finding your way vocab sheet and wordsearch; then finished in style with a smile as the screen share worked and we enjoyed the Gypsy Queens rendition of L’Italiano, by courtesy of Phil. Thank you to all who took part and for technical help from Mark and Ian.

Oue next meeting will be on Thursday, 12th November, 2020 when we shall begin a continuation of our French. So all you Zoomers see you then!
