LEADER: John Aldridge

 MEETINGS: 1st and 3rd Monday Mornings


The group now has over a dozen regular members, who meet at 10.00 every first & third Monday of the month, at the Footsteps social centre and coffee bar in Whaley Bridge (almost opposite the Mechanics' Institute).

Classes are informal, and encourage members to develop sufficient confidence to speak the language when travelling to Spain and other Spanish speaking countries. Particular attention is paid to correct pronunciation, and developing suitable vocabulary for everyday situations, with just enough time on grammar for it to hang together.

The 2 hour sessions incorporate a break for tea or coffee, to rest the brain and wet the tongue.

Last year we had an evening meal out at a Spanish restaurant, and organized a tapas bar at the annual U3A summer social, both of which we hope to repeat this year.

While almost all of the group now have enough Spanish to be able to say a few words, new members, even without any previous knowledge, are always welcome.
