We continue to meet on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month from 10 – 11.30 am at the leader's house.
We practise conversation skills by talking about places we have visited or special encounters. From time to time we read and translate articles from magazines or newspapers, and discuss films or TV programmes. With seven regular participants we have some lively sessions, and we are all enjoying the social aspect of our meetings.
Both German groups had to be suspended with effect from 18 March 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Since then I have kept in touch with both groups, sending relevant worksheets by email. I have received some positive feedback.
On 8 July we had the first advanced group meeting on Zoom, kindly hosted by Remy. This went very well, and we shall continue on a fortnightly basis on our usual Wednesday morning.
We all hope that in the not too distant future we can meet up again in person and enjoy each other’s company. In the meantime, I try to keep everybody’s interest in practising German alive.
