French Revision – 10th May 2018

Our April meeting went well despite a few being away on holiday. We prepared and performed role plays in Italian, to build confidence and practise the language skills more. All joined in with good heart amidst much merriment. Some good Italian characters were emerging!!! Well done, everyone.

If anyone new wants to join us the meeting on May 10th at 10.30 at Jphn Godber Centre in the Byron Suite would be a good time to join, as we are doing a revision French class then will go on to add to our French repertoire. Please bring all your old French sheets to the meeting. If anyone new is interested, please let me know and I can sort out sheets for you.

Liz and I look forward to seeing you on 10th May and do not forget the meal at Moda to practise our Italian is on 17th May at 6.30.

Fun with Languages group begin Italian

We made a great start to our Fun with Languages group for 2018 with most of the original members present and we welcomed three new ones too. We began with the first of three sessions on Italian. We learnt how to meet and greet each other and introduce ourselves.
We viewed the relevant clips from the internet, even though the computer did its usual ‘playing up’ scenario. And we went on to learn some basic numbers and complete, or almost complete, a challenging number wordsearch.
We all enjoyed the session and look forward to the next one on Hotels and Directions on Thursday 8th Feb. at 10.30 in the Byron Suite at JGC. See you there! Please remember your £5.00 subs please this month. Thank you.
Best Wishes,
Liz Attenborough & Ann Murray

Christmas Revelries and New Beginnings

We had a great time at the presentation meeting on 13th December and this was followed on the 14th by our trip to the German market in Birmingham. We enjoyed tasting the Gluhwein and other goodies, and seeing the huge array of stalls. We also enjoyed a tour around Birmingham taking in the Edwardian tearoom, a lovely carol service by the conservatoire choir and an enjoyable walk along Brindley place and the Mailbox, followed by a meal at Cafe Rouge. Ann’s mistletoe cause much comment on the return train journey home and great fun was had by all who managed to come at a busy time of year.
Our January meeting is on Thursday 11th at 10.30 at JGC. We begin Italian.
Happy New year to all.
Ann and Liz
