Fun With Languages

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!

Our April meeting concluded the Spanish sessions for this time. This time we rejoiced that there were no technical issues (thanks to my husband Ian) and we caught up with the Hotel booking we missed last time due to problems. We then went on to Health issues and conversation on these.

Our next meeting is Thursday, May 9th, 2019 at John Godber Centre, Byron suite 10.30 to 12 noon when we shall begin the first of four sessions on Italian. Now is a good time to join if you wish (back copies can be provided of missed sessions) If you are a regular group member please bring all your Italian sheets as we shall be revising this time before we move on to new things.

We had an enjoyable tapas meal in April also, thank you Liz for organising that. The food was delicious but the venue a bit noisy! Here we are on the photo.

We did indeed have fun and games at our last meeting, but not the sort we really wanted! This was due in the end to a computer update blocking the online videos we were using. Thanks to everyone for their patient understanding. We did manage to complete a vocabulary sheet on hotels and bookings, also a crossword and had lots of hilarity (genuine this time) in our group conversations.

The tapas meal will take place at Bar Erico on Wednesday 10th April at 7.0pm. We are sorry there are some who cannot make that date and hope more can make the next meal.

Our next meeting, and our last for this session in Spanish, will be at John Godber Centre on Thursday, 11th April at 10.30 – 12 noon. We hope to consider Health matters then.

The May meeting will begin four sessions of Italian. We look forward to seeing you all. New members welcome – see the board to sign up please.
