Masterclass and Board Meetings

Updated on:

The next ‘Masterclass’ is on Sunday 24 January at 15.00.  Two poems by John Betjeman who was the Poet Laureate from 1972 until his death in 1984 - 'How to get on in Society' (1958) (showing his awareness of the hangups of the British class system) and 'Executive' (1974) (showing how he viewed brash young businesspeople and their jargon.)  We will also continue our look at some words in British English that have rather different American equivalents.

The poems are here.

The British and U.S. words are here.
