News and events from Judith Allinson

1. LEARNING LANGUAGES
I wonder if any of you on my list are interested in learning languages?
I have accumulated more “teach yourself” language books than I now need
or have space for.
If you live near Settle and would like to borrow (on more or less
permanent loan) any books/cds/tapes relating to French, Italian, Spanish,
Russian, Welsh, German, Japanese, Greek do get in contact.

I used to get to about chapter 10 in easy languages, and chapter 2 in
hard languages .. and then go off and buy a new book and start again.
(Most languages fell in the latter category)
