We are sorry to lose Eve Roussell who is unable to get to the meetings any more. We wish her well.

Our January meeting woke us all up with a return to Spanish after several French sessions. We looked at the definite and indefinite Articles, some new vocabulary and gender matching. It was all a bit mind boggling after the Christmas frivolities.
Well done to everyone taking part in our Showcase Language ‘Allo ‘Allo Revisited sketch. I think we had more fun practising it than the actual performance! But hopefully the audience had fun watching us!
Our next meeting will be on 14th Feb. when we shall continue in Spanish to consolidate our learning, explore more conversation and view a few verbs. it will be as usual in the John Godber Centre at 10.30 till 12 noon in the Byron Suite. See you then!

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.
