Thurs.5th July and it’s our final morning before the summer break. It was held at Marie’s, our Group Leader’s house. We all gathered together – but no easy day for us! Marie had worked as hard as ever to challenge us and we all had to “get translating” A pleasant morning with good company, our group is really special. We had lovely cream cakes and Tony (Snape that is) did us proud with a beautiful home made ginger cake – delicious! As a group we thanked Marie most sincerely for all her hard work and for creating such a lovely working atmosphere. Will see you in September – maybe we will all have done some homework??? Have a great summer.
To-day, our French Group met at Marie’s house because our normal venue was being used for elections. All 16 of us gathered together and we had the pleasure of meeting Vincent, who is living and studying in Liverpool. We all had the opportunity to ask him a question about his life, both here and in France, his views on the French political situation, about his family etc. It was really encouraging for all of us to realise how far we had come in our French conversation and he was such a pleasure to talk to. All thanks to Marie, our Leader,who arranged for Vilncent to visit us to-day and who works so hard to keep us on our toes. She is a Taskmaster in the nicest possible way!. Even her cakes and biscuits are so good. (Vincent with a section of our group)
We are a busy group who work hard at our French challenges and are really enjoying the work we do! Marie Bramwell
Great progress has been made by the group since its start in early November.
Each week we’re learning lots of new vocab, expressions and (dare I say it?)…. verbs, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
We’re presently concentrating on food and drink and how to get by in French cafe’s and restaurants.
