Practise your languages with me


As a fully qualified languages teacher and translator, I pride myself on keeping my languages current by regularly organising social events in the Portsmouth area for speakers of French, German and Italian. These events are organised through groups on Facebook and held in the Greater Portsmouth area. I am a member of similar groups for Russian and Spanish speakers. I also maintain a small group for translators in the Portsmouth area called the South Central Translators network. 


Further details of the social groups can be found in the information in the boxes below. The pictures and titles link to the group pages on Facebook. No Facebook? - You can e-mail the groups using the links provided.
