Spanish Intermediate with Conversation

Leader: Carol Chaplin Tel: 01604 583672

Held every Tuesday 2.00-4.00 pm at St Crispin Retirement Village

After successfully meeting on Zoom each week for about 18 months this group is now meeting face to face again in a new ‘home’. As I write this in October 2021 we have had about 8 sessions together sitting at a socially spaced distance with Covid precautions. And its great to be back together properly!

We now meet at St Crispin Retirement Village (near Duston) by kind permission of the manager, as I am now a resident there.

This group started in March 2014 as Spanish Beginners. It is difficult to say now what ‘level’ the group members are as there is no formal testing and no comparison within the group so I use Intermediate to show they are not beginners but have ‘moved on’. Group members have gained confidence in Spanish and prepare some activities. They notice each others mistakes-including mine- and can discuss what it should be.

The group continues to be relaxed, informal and friendly and most important fun!

If you are interested in this group, and have some Spanish already be in touch with me and I’ll invite you to come along and see for yourself if this group would suit you. You’ll get a warm welcome and tea and biscuits!

Contact me on my telephone number above or use the email link on the top right. Please don’t contact the Retirement Village directly.

Spanish Beginners/Intermediate

Leader: Val Oviatt Tel: 07743 154611
Deputy: Irene Poole Tel: 07899 008617

A relaxed, informal and friendly group; we learn, read and generally practice our Spanish. During lockdown, we met via Zoom and, although we have now resumed face-to-face classes, we plan still to meet occasionally on Zoom. This helps facilitate the sharing of screens in the various media that we use.

We meet 10.30-12.30 fortnightly on a Tuesday at one another's homes.

If you are interested in joining please contact Val or Irene by telephone or email using the link on the top right.
