Yesterday evening our swimming club got together to farewell our coach. We convened in a lovely local French restaurant. The food was decidedly Nouvelle Cuisine, beautifully presented and so delicious. Except the duck. Thank god I did not order that. I think I might have been sick had I been force to eat it. My main was pork with a red wine reduction. Mmmm.
Everyone in this crowd was more interested in my Chatty Cafe venture anyway so I spent a bit of time talking about language learning. I might get some new students! I am thinking about adding another couple of classes to my schedule. Let me know if you are interested.
I've got an idea for a breakfast meeting, any earlybirds in the area? Want a power-hour of English before work? Call me! Nine o'clock is the earliest I can manage right now but from April next year I will be free from eight.
Amazingly in this very small city I meet people almost every week who speak English. A mum who spent a year working in a vineyard in the South Island (NZ); a couple who honeymooned in Australia; a retired elementary school teacher who loves to travel; a woman whose daughter lives overseas. It's exceptional! I am so lucky to meet such extraordinary people. The fact that they speak English is a bonus, what I really enjoy hearing about is their interesting lives.
So that's my weekend so far! (Don't worry I do not have a hangover!) This afternoon I am sewing a few things. And reading "Children at Play" by Heidi Britz-Crecelius, it's a book I have had for years about Waldorf Principles (educational philosophy).
Have a good one!
