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

Our meeting in November went well and we continued with the Ma France course revising directions and places in France; also completing a crossword on French place names. It is great to see many of you zooming but there is always room for more!

Our next meeting of Zoom will be on Thursday 10th December at 10.30 am when we shall continue with Ma France and also play the guess what? xmas items the group are preparing to share. On the 10th December also at 7.00 pm we are having a Zoom drinks and nibbles session for an hour with a game so we can wish each other a happy Christmas. Sadly, you will have to provide your own drinks etc on this occasion!

If you are not into Zooming or are unable to join us, we still wish you and yours a happy and safe Christmastime. We hope we can meet some time during 2021, but we shall have to see how things work out.

Love Liz and Ann xx

Greetings everyone! We hope this finds you well and in as good a heart as possible as we all cope with these challenging Covid 19 days. Our good wishes go out to all those who are struggling with anxiety or other health issues.

We had the last of our Italian sessions for this set on 8th October via Zoom link. It was a more pleasing turn out than last time so well done! And those who have not been on, we miss you. We had a quiz on Italy kindly led by Liz; and then we looked at the Finding your way vocab sheet and wordsearch; then finished in style with a smile as the screen share worked and we enjoyed the Gypsy Queens rendition of L’Italiano, by courtesy of Phil. Thank you to all who took part and for technical help from Mark and Ian.

Oue next meeting will be on Thursday, 12th November, 2020 when we shall begin a continuation of our French. So all you Zoomers see you then!

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.
