The French Conversation Group of members with currently seventeen members on the register continues to meet most Tuesday mornings at 11.00am at the Railway Club, by Truro Station. Anyone interested in coming should speak to me first (see details below) as there are now so many that we may need to create a waiting list!
We shall take a summer break. The last meeting of the season will be on Tuesday, 23rd July, and the first of the autumn season will be on Tuesday, 10th September. Julian Pykett (01872) 277002.
French Film Group:
Our meetings take place at Tony Herring's home on the second Friday each month, generally viewing DVDs, readily obtained on loan from the extensive Resource Centre of the Third Age Trust at Bromley.
At our April Meeting we saw "Le Retour de Martin Guerre". It was an excellent film set in sixteenth century France. It told the true story of a soldier who went off to the wars, and an imposter who turned up some years later to claim his wife and his inheritance.
We will meet again on May 10th to see another Gerard Depardieu film "Trop Belle Pour Toi".
Bagas Tavas Kernuack - Cornish Language Group:
A small friendly group for informal Cornish conversation has started each Monday morning at 10.30am, meeting in the Cafeteria within Truro Cathedral, where everybody is welcome! Why not come along and enjoy learning a little of our own local language.
Chris Marks is our leader, who will be pleased to provide you with any additional information (01872) 501329.
Simple conversation for improvers in Spanish:
This group is looking for anyone interested in developing their use of Spanish language. Meeting in members' homes, please contact me if you would like to come along. We meet weekly on Thursdays at 10.00am.
Always welcome any expressions of interest and offers of help, please! Please indicate your level, such as Basic, Moderate, Fairly fluent, etc. Harry Nicholls (01209) 860380.
