thank you very much for attending yesterday’s talk about David Ferry’s exhibition. I hope you enjoyed our little trip into his surreal world, in which exotic fish invade ancestral homes and the great British landscape meets ‘The Great British Bake Off’.
As usual, please find below the exercise sheets which are free to download for everybody who is keen on brushing up on his or her German. Images are under copyright, and it is forbidden to distribute them any further and/or use them for any commercial purposes.
All the best and bis bald,

6. German Talk David Ferry Flyer November 2018
it was great seeing you yesterday, and I hope you enjoyed the little ‘pop-up’- exhibition. While I was giving the presentation, I actually noticed some mistakes that I had made in the text. I hope I found them all now. Below, you find the corrected version.
As this talk was different from the usual format, I also include some photos; some of those who couldn’t attend last night were curious about what would be on show. Apologies for the bad quality of the images; considering that I work at the School of Art, I should’ve borrowed a proper camera rather than make do with my inadequate mobile phone….
The next talk will be on the 7th of November and in connection with one of the forthcoming exhibitions in our galleries. I’ll publish more information closer to the time in the usual places.
I always hesitate to take personal data of people, but if you would like to receive emails about future ‘German Talks’ (and ‘French Talks’, if you like), you’re very welcome to email me your email address on firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll keep you updated.
Best wishes, und bis bald,
