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.

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
