8th May meeting – guest speaker Rhea Williams from the Queen’s English Society
The Society campaigns to encourage high standards of written and spoken English, which have been found to be lamentably low among school-leavers and even university graduates. One of its principal campaigns is for better and explicit English language education and regular constructive correction of errors in English language in schools. The Society arranges meetings, lectures and courses, promotes research, publishes members’ work and provides media comment.
Rhea has taught drama, English and psychology. She’s taught teachers how to teach, has taught evening classes, and worked in radio. Her range of experience includes doing voice-overs for BT and being tour manager for a coach company. She spent a term teaching English in China which she describes as “interesting”. She now plays, socialises, travels extensively and reads voraciously.
Please come and make Rhea welcome, and bring anyone you think might be interested.
