Newsletter Contributions

Can you share something you have been doing in your Circle group? Could you write about your favourite place to visit, or anything else that would be of interest to other RL members?

We need short (200-300 word) articles for this newsletter, with photos if possible. It would be great to have an article for each week’s newsletter.

Please email any items for the newsletter to ranches.ladies@gmail.com before midday on Friday for inclusion in the next Monday’s newsletter.

RL Circles News

The number of Circles activities have increased so it is not possible to fit each one on the newsletter every week. See the March Circles Calendar on the website for more activities.

Ramadan will start from around the 23rd March and this may affect the scheduling of some Circle activities.

Book Circle

The Book Circle will meet on Friday 17th March to discuss The End of Summer and we are very excited that we will be joined by the author, Salha Al Busaidy. If anyone has read the book and would like to join the discussion, pls contact Jackie on circles.ranches.ladies@gmail.com

Open to Ranches Ladies members only, space is limited.

New – Italian Circle

The Italian Circle is back and completely new! Join us on Wednesdays from 10 to 11 am and learn how to speak in Italian in a blink of an eye.

Every week we will improv real life situations through guided and non guided role plays. Amaze your friends with your Italian whether you’re going on a holiday or just to an Italian venue in Dubai! Don’t expect a traditional frontal lesson, you will be the star on stage! Warm up exercises to gain focus, concentration and free your creativity. Activities to learn vocabulary and grammar! Fun is guaranteed! All levels are welcome. Wear comfortable clothes.

The Italian Circle will be led by Paola and Nicoletta. Paola is a certified Italian teacher with 10 years of experience in Dubai.
