A woman from Shepreth has penned a book based on her experience running a group at Royston’s University of the Third Age.

Elisabeth Goodman runs French Conversation sessions at U3A – a learning organisation for retired and semi-retired people – and this inspired her to write ‘Conversation s’il vous plait’.

The guide is for anyone who wants to start a similar group, giving tips on how to get up and running, plus topics and materials needed.

Elisabeth was born in Belgium, learned French as a child, and has helped many people learn French over the years – including a man in his 90s.

She said: “He did really well and when he went to France and someone said ‘you’re good’ he was so chuffed. That’s what makes running a group like this so worthwhile,”

Elisabeth also runs business training courses for adults and has written works on business.

Royston U3A holds monthly meetings and has more than 30 interest groups. For more information log onto www.u3asites.org.uk/royston/home or contact Jackie Gellert on 01763 248097 or jackieroystonu3a@gmail.com
