This is a group for those who wish to revive the French they learnt in past years – and to have fun with it.  We prepare a brief talk (in French); we then break up into pairs to pursue a given topic.  We sometimes have dictation or some other point of grammar or we will play a game.  There is room for more members in this group.

Greek has changed less in two thousand years than any other spoken tongue. Modern Greek is nearer to the Greek of Homer than modern English is to Chaucer (ca.1343-1400).

Many members join U3A to study languages that fascinated them but did not have time to persue. No prior knowledge of this most beautiful of languages is required.
