LANGUAGE STUDIES:

 

Those interested in practising their conversational language skills may like to know of the Café Polyglot, which has been going for some years in Falmouth, meeting at the Dolly's on Thursday evenings, from 7.30 p.m., and which has now also started up in Truro, meeting on Wednesday evenings, from 7 – 9 p.m. at the Wine Barrel, 18 Old Bridge Street.  Anyone is welcome to these to practise chatting in Spanish, French, German, Italian, or possible other languages, to other learners or with native speakers.  For further information see the Facebook page thttps://www.facebook.com/groups/CafePolyglotFalmouth/

Italian Conversation

We are continuing to use Zoom as it has the advantage of being able to access online material and as our members come from a wide area, the problem of where to meet is solved. We meet on the the first and thirdWednesday of the month from 10.30 to 12.00.

French Film Group:

The French flm club will re-start in September. We will meet on the last Wednesday of each month at Feock Church Hall at 13:30, starting on September 29. All the films have English subtitles so even people who have no knowledge of French can come and enjoy the films. We watch a variety of genres from funny to quirky or serious, some new releases and some older ones. Since it has been next to impossible to travel to France lately it is an alternative for francophiles!

Here is some information about the next film:

Paul is an orphan from Paris who is taken in by a couple, Célestine and Borel in Sologne. Borel is a gamekeeper on a vast estate. Paul will discover the countryside life and its people. He will learn about the relationships between nature and people and people themselves. The cinematography is stunning and takes us back to the life of the 1930s. It features one of France’s most favoured actors François Cluzet who played the unforgettable Philipe in “Intouchables".

French for Beginners?:

We have some members seeking to join a beginners' class to study French at an initial level. Is there a competent member who might be able to lead such a class of beginners out there? Contact initially with John Skelton on (01872) 865316 if you could be interested!

French Reading Group

We have three or four members who would like to start a French reading group and would like to hear from anyone who would be interested in joining them. The idea would be to meet monthly, probably in Devoran, and to discuss the chosen book also in French. If you are interested please contact Berra Brooker on 01209 697243.

 

Spanish beginners.

Beginners Spanish.

There is a possibility we may be able to resume our classes at The Norway Inn next month. ( October )
This will be on Monday mornings, 10-30 to 12-30. As we have been off for such a long time, I suggest
we have a revision of what we have covered thus far. This will also offer new members that might
wish to come along a chance to join in. Please contact me if you would like to restart.

I am in the process of seeing if the Falmouth group ( Thursday mornings ) can use the communal
room here in our building again. There are currently still some restrictions in place and I need to find
out when they will be lifted. Anyone requiring further information about either group, please contact.

Lastly, I have been asked if I I would consider starting a French for Beginners class. Anyone interested ?

Hablemos Español:

The Spanish conversation group meets every Thursday for Spanish chat and language learning, varied by trips this year to tapas restaurants, cafe polyglot in Falmouth and even a Spanish play.   Members of the group take it in turns to host meetings and plan the session - with the emphasis on having fun while trying to speak Spanish throughout our time together!
