We continue with our Zoom meetings and with Italian. We had the challenge of a map of part of Rome to answer questions on places and directions, to varying degrees of success, accuracy and depth of information. Anyway, we got through!!!

Our next meeting will be on 10th September at 10.30 am and we are trialling an hour session. This will be a quiz on Italy and kindly organised by Liz. We shall continue to Zoom each month on the second Thursday of the month at 10.30 am until Christmas. Then review the situation as any developments unfold.

We hope all who manage to have some kind of holiday break have a great time and keep safe. To those not zooming, we hope you keep well and we miss you. Take care one and all and keep safe and sane!!

Our meeting today took the form of Kim’s game in Italian. This was followed by a short passage read out and questions asked on it. Everyone did very well especially as this was the first of our group of sessions in Italian. And we were pleased to welcome a new group member also.

Zooming is a challenge but we are rising to the new way in order to keep everyone together, and it is so lovely to actually see folks and interact.

Our next meetings will be 23rd July and then 13th August all at 10.30 am. Zooming instructions will be sent out in due course by email to group members. At present there are no instructions about things being any different. So keep safe everyone and practise Italian ready for the advert challenge on 23rd July.

Hola! We have continued to Zoom twice monthly in our Spanish lessons and this month has seen us do a great job of translating an article from Hola magazine about Harry y Meghan. And for our next Zoom we shall share in Spanish advertising a product, without saying what it is or showing it and the rest of the group will guess (hopefully) what is being advertised.

July sees us return to some sessions on Italian for a few weeks. Meanwhile we hope everyone is keeping safe and well and in good heart. It is not easy as times goes on, but the virus is still very much around and we all need to take care despite some lockdown restrictions being lifted. One day we shall be meeting up and hugging again!

We hope you are keeping well and happy during these challenging times and finding new ways to live with the virus as the future months unfold. Meanwhile, we do the best we can and enjoy our Zoom meetings and it is so lovely to see so many of your smiling faces when we Zoom.

We are zooming twice monthly at the moment to keep a contact and interest. Our meeting on 30th April shared our answers for the 10 Maths questions posed in Spanish. Good results all round, well done!

The meeting on 14th May saw us sharing our sentences on colour and reminding ourselves of the agreement and positioning of adjectives in a sentence. Again, a good effort. Thank you to those who are not on Zoom but phoned or emailed me with answers.

Our interim Zoom will be on 28th May and I have sent out a Magazine article in Spanish for translation for our June Zoom. Happy days amigos!

Thanks to the amazing technology we are blessed with and the genius of Mark and others we were able to have our first Zoom meeting for our session on Spanish in April. We have also planned a Zoom coffee morning and chat for the end of the month.

I was delighted that so many managed to get online and it was great to see everyone’s smiling face and to know how all are bearing up during this sad and challenging time. We had fun checking on the Crossword puzzle I had sent out earlier, and it would be good for members to ensure they now know all the vocabulary on there. You have time!!! We also played Kim’s Game with 10 articles, relying on memory and being able to translate the items into Spanish. Well done, everyone.

Liz and I wish you all well as we soldier on. Like us you are probably missing family and friends, but we will get through this folks. There is hope.
