  • French Discussion


    This fairly advanced group is aimed at people who already have quite a good command of French and are keen to participate fully in discussions about French society and culture. Members take turns to present a discussion topic which could be, for example, a current news item or recent holiday. The leader, who is a French native, uses recent articles, tapes and DVDs of French films. There will be some preparatory work prior to each session.

    The aim of this group is to improve conversational skills, extend vocabulary and broaden knowledge of modern Germany, mainly through the study of suitable and brief texts of magazines and newspaper articles, etc.  Members are encouraged to offer suggestions and contribute relevant material.  The group is suitable for those with a good understanding of the grammar and structure of German who may also have contact with native speakers. Group is open to other U3As.

  • Italian Conversation


    Enthusiastic Italophiles with a reasonably good knowledge of Italian come together to enjoy conversing in Italian.  The aim is to maintain and develop their linguistic skills in an informal and relaxed fashion using CDs, DVDs and newspaper and magazine articles to stimulate discussion.  Members are expected to do a certain amount of preparation between sessions.

  • Italian Improvers


    The group has been running for many years and its members have mixed but mainly extensive experience of the Italian language, so we are at an intermediate level.
    In our meetings we read and translate a short magazine article and present topics or information which we discuss informally.

    Currently we have fortnightly 40 minute meetings on Zoom but hope to return to having 2 meetings a month in each others homes.
    There are vacancies for one or two new members. Please contact the Group Organiser below.
