TWELVE members of U3A Marina Baixa’s Spanish Language groups met for lunch in Albir to celebrate the end of term.

The two groups for Beginners and Improvers began last September and despite Covid the groups met every week apart from five weeks during the winter.

Numbers attending diminished as some members understandably felt safer staying at home, but the classes continued with one person to a desk as well as masks, temperature checks and careful sanitation of furniture.


Classes have now finished for the summer but will resume on September 8 when possibly the situation will be a little more normal.

The groups’ tutor was presented with gifts including a voucher for afternoon tea for her and her husband in appreciation of the work entailed in organising the course.

U3A offer a variety of courses and events designed to appeal to a wide range of interests. Further information can be found on their website www.u3amarinabaixa.com or go along to their next meeting on June at 11am at the Casa de Cultura in Alfaz.

Linda came to Spain to live when she was 24, just over 52 years ago, and her husband is Spanish. She began writing for English-language local newspapers in the mid-1970s and hasn’t stopped since! She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
