Category Archives: Fun with Languages
Our October meeting went with a zing. We had a French revision session. Firstly, we enjoyed a quiz and this was followed by group role-plays on given scenarios. Our next meeting will be on Thursday 14th November at the John Godber Centre.
We hope that all the members who were feeling unwell will soon be much better. We were pleased to have another new member join us in October and new members are always welcome to our group.
We decided to postpone our Christmas meal until January, as everyone is very booked up in December and also we will have something to look forward to amongst the dark winter evenings after Christmas.

A brief reminder that there is no meeting in September.
We resume again on Thursday, 10th October, 2019 in the John Godber Centre 10.30 am to 12 noon and we shall begin the first of four sessions on French.
Newcomers are welcome. This group at present covers three languages – French, Spanish and Italian on a four-monthly cycle to learn enough to get by on holiday. It is not an intensive course and to get fun out of this you need to do all the languages not just one. Each session is built upon.
Please contact us if you want to come for a taster at any time.

At our July meeting we learnt about Regular verbs and the irregular forms of To be and To have. After much thinking we then tackled a revision wordsearch which was easier on the brain!
Our next meeting will be on Thursday, 8th of August, 2019 when we hope to look at leisure and some songs in Italian on You tube, computer willing! This will be the last Italian session in this series.
We have NO meeting in September but will be going to Moda for a meal together before that. Then we will resume on Thursday, 10th October, 2019 at 10.30 am in the John Godber Centre when we shall begin our next four sessions on French.
Happy holidays everyone! New members are always welcome!

We were a little low on numbers for our June meeting due to holidays and illness but undeterred we continued with our Italian sessions and welcomed another new member.
This month we watched some BBC internet clips on Market food and Clothes shopping. We then practised this in small groups using the vocabulary sheet on these topics.
We are planning an Italian meal out for sometime in August and in due course Liz will email out proposed dates and venues.
Our next meeting will be on Thursday 11th July, 10.30 till 12 noon, in the John Godber Centre. This month we shall be looking at some simple verbs that are most commonly used and furthering our language usage in a variety of ways.

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!
