    Over the years, I have noticed that there is always a great deal of interest when aspects of the English language are presented in the media. As an English-German translator, I have a thorough understanding of the English language and its history, and I would like to share my background knowledge with those in the community who are interested find out more about the history of English. I am thinking of a 1 hour presentation that would outline the various influences that shaped English over the centuries and made it into the language we use today.

    If the committee would consider such a presentation suitable for the activities of the Neighbourhood House, I would have it ready by early September and I would like to call it ‘A Brief History of the English Language’.

    Looking forward to your reply,

    Best regards

      Hello Rolf,

      Many thanks for your email. I think your workshop sounds very interesting and would be a suitable activity to offer at the Neighbourhood House. We could run the event during Adult Learners Week which is September 1-8.

      If you could send me an email with a brief outline of the session, we can design a flyer and start to generate interest.

      Please send the flyer content to rcnh@westnet.com.au

      Many thanks,

      Henni Wade
