Rabbiting away in Spanish at the Dog and Rabbit, St Just.

March – Spanish at the Dog and Rabbit

Now March is upon us, the Café Dog and Rabbit has reopened after a very well deserved hibernation in February, and we are back to our usual Thursday evening Spanish sessions. These are from 4.30 – 5.30 and are aimed at beginners who have some knowledge of the basics, and people who have learnt a bit of Spanish and want to practise their speaking. To give you an idea of what we have been covering, last week we practised using and understanding numbers above 100, and then understanding the words for places in town, and saying how far places are.

New people welcome

We are always on the look out for more people to join the group, so please pop along to our next session and enjoy un café con leche and some Spanish chat at the Dog and Rabbit.

Thanks!

Many thanks to Corinne at Bosavern House, who provided a very comfortable alternative venue in February. Muchas gracias!

Why learn a language?

Why learn German or Spanish?

In the first class I like to ask learners why they want to learn German or Spanish. Shown above are just a few of the answers they give.

Get speaking right from the start

Many people learnt a language at school and now want to take it up again, or learn a completely new language. Others did not really enjoy language learning at school, but are motivated to give language learning a second chance. Often they feel their knowledge of grammar is OK, but they want to be able to speak and understand more confidently.

Travel, friends and holidays

A lot of people are enthusiastic about the country where the language is spoken and may have visited and got a taste for the culture and want to go back and chat with the locals or friends over a café con leche or a Weissbier.

For business

I have several learners working in the hospitality industry, who want to be able to communicate with their guests. Here in West Cornwall we have a huge number of German visitors, thanks partly to the popularity of the German produced TV adaptations of Rosamunde Pilcher novels shown on a Sunday evening in Germany. Filmed in Cornwall with a German cast, these shows draw thousands of German tourists every year to visit the landscapes and houses made famous in the programmes.

Classes tailored to your interests

Whatever your reasons, I will take them into account when planning your lessons and if there is something you particularly want to learn then let me know, and I can plan it into a future lesson.

And if you have no particular reason and just want the fun and challenge of learning a new language, then that’s fine too!

¡Café con español!

What better rainy day activity than grabbing a delicious cappuccino and learning a bit of Spanish in St Just’s Café Dog and Rabbit? Classes are on Thursday afternoons from 4.30 – 5.30 and it’s a mixed beginners/improvers class. There are 3 more sessions before Christmas, and we may continue in the New Year if enough people would like to  – so tell your friends.
