German Daytime

This group meets in each other’s homes or local café: hosting is not an essential part of membership of this group.

People on the group’s email list will receive a weekly update.

The group is thriving but more members would still be welcomed.

Russian Language РУССКИЙ ЯЗЫК

Meetings are held on Thursday afternoons from 2pm to 4pm.

We are trying to resurrect oral and aural skills for part of the session. We also translate items, sometimes news downloaded from Правда, Известя, Би-Би-Си etc, but more often short stories. Currently we are reading the delightful “мышонок пик”.

Some knowledge of Russian is needed.

Dutch Conversation

Would you like to share your thoughts on Art, Politics, Weather, Travel, Sports, anything of interest in Dutch?

Join our small group of (more or less) Dutch speakers. We usually meet once a month on a Wednesday mornings in members' homes.

For more information contact Corrie Swain (Group Contact).

German Group 1

Meetings are held in members’ homes on Tuesday evenings.

Everyday conversation with opportunity for items of special interest. There is no formal tuition, but we have several native speakers willing to help. As a group we meet to practice, not to teach. So it is necessary that you have enough German to hear and understand everyday conversation. We don't expect new members to start speaking much for the first few weeks.

We expect each member to take a fair share of the hosting in the home, for this group it is between 3-4 times per year that each member acts as host.

We hold a number of social events, as a group, through the year. These include meals together with partners (in English), a trip to a German speaking City (long weekend) and Carol evening just before Christmas where we sing both English and German carols.
