Tuition: Languages

French conversation classes I'm writing to you because you (may have) expressed an interest in brushing the rust off your A level French from the last century (!) and returning it to active use. I'm running informal but themed and structured French classes chez moi at 89 Roseford Road,CB42HB from Tuesday October 15 morning from 10-11:30. Coffee will be served. The tuition fee is £12 (or 12 cams for Camlets members). A qualified and very experienced language teacher, my classes aim to practise essential French structures orally so that they become automatic; improve your pronunciation; provide fail-safe coping strategies, and improve your listening skills. Confidence-building, self- expression and fun will be the order of the day in a safe setting. Motivation is the prime factor in successful language learning. Not memory. Not graft. Not aptitude.... So on completion of the course (by May) you can look forward to the reward of an optional 6-day residential course at our house in south west France where you can immerse yourself in French life, holding your own fluently and confidently in a range of authentic settings: preparing a meal; a meeting with a local Maire; a Q & A with a local Office de Tourisme; a country walk n' talk; une viste à la ferme; a guided tour of Clairevivre (look it up); making an enquiry on the telephone; a meal in a restaurant, etc. If this piques your interest get back to me. Feel free to tell anyone with rusty knowledge of French you think would benefit from these classes. Class size ware limited to 6 or 7 so dépêchez-vous! à très bientôt, David (12 cams cams)


Genealogy Would you like to know more about your family, your ancestors, where they lived and what they did for a living? How about finding out if you have anything in common with them or if any of them were famous for something? I have lots of experience of searching for relatives and locating them. I've worked my way back into the past and forward into the present day. As genealogical research can be a time consuming business we can agree how much time I'll devote to you and the things you are particularly interested in. There are usually no sterling costs to this research. (1-10 cams)
