      Because the video homes in on the speaker, you can’t really get an impression of how packed the room was, Val. All seats were taken. Already looking forward to next month’s.

    I belong to the American Women’s Club in Seville and started a group for professional English-speaking women here, too. It’s so great to have a group of like-minded people who share more than just a common language.

      The British Club is possibly more British by than name than make-up, Cat. At the Poems Out Loud event, there were members and non-members from Denmark, Germany, and Spain. A local poet even read one of his compositions out before an expat delivered the translated version.

    I’d love to be in a club with someone who’s on first-name terms with the Beatles!

      You can see why he was a bouncer. Basketball-player tall. But with a girth to deter even the most determined troublemaker.

    Hi I am looking to relocate to Gran Canaria and was wondering if there is a website for expats needing English carers. I have 33 years experience.
