Rosemary graduated with a BSc (Hons) from the University of Surry, a four-year course that included several months spent in different parts of Germany. Her first job was working for a a Swiss engineering company as a bi-lingual personal assistant. She started at the REC twenty-five years ago with one class, gained a qualification in teaching adult learners and currently has five various level classes in German. She is the secretary of the Bedford Bamberg Association, which promotes friendship between our twin towns. Take a look at our March 12th newsletter to see how Rosemary has adapted to teaching online while the REC is temporarily closed.
"I am continuing to keep my ability to speak German and learning many other things during our conversations in what has become as much a friendship group as a class. I have met many interesting and delightful people and have attended short courses on very varied subjects of interest, tutored by very knowledgeable and enthusiastic teachers."
"We are so fortunate in Bedford to have this institution. It has been, and still is, a source of much good company, valued friendships and accumulation of knowledge."
"Just to say how much I am enjoying the 'one off' Zoom sessions! The ones I have joined so far have been interesting, and being with others, albeit in a virtual kind of way, has helped enormously to lessen the feeling of isolation. Thank you."
