I have recently started the Linguaphone French AllTalk course, and what fun it is! I was never too good at languages at school, but the straightforward way the course is structured, combined with the slightly corny story of the English business man on his first trip to France, makes it really enjoyable to Learn the French Language.
I am on CD 4 out of 16 so far, and we have been introduced to checking into the hotel, ordering breakfast, asking for directions, asking questions, the alphabet, some of the more common numbers and a whole lot more.
I am now an enthusiastic advocate for this way of learning.

Dominican Republic Bavaro Beach All Inclusive Holiday – Part 2
When we had left England the rains were continuing and we were still in the aftermath of the recent floods, so with the 36 degrees of heat which greeted us in the Dominican Republic we were keen to test the pool that evening.
The water was deliciously warm, and the children thoroughly enjoyed their first swim in the huge pool which included islands and swim-up bar.
When we checked out the beach we were shocked at the size of the waves (we were later to discover they were not always this big), and we were pleased we had bought the Konfidence Swim Jackets for all three of our children. The huge waves were great for the adults in our party, and we knew we would be back soon.
27th July – We had stayed up as late as we could the previous evening, but by 8:30pm we were all exhausted (this was obviously 1:30am UK time). We had a rather fitful night’s sleep, so having dozed until about 6:00am we were more than ready for breakfast when the buffet opened.
The buffet breakfast was excellent. A dozen or so different rolls and pastries, cereals, fruit juices or smoothies, 3 types of pancakes or crepes (to the delight of my older son), cold and hot meats, eggs made to order and, of course, a great selection of fruit. Mango always goes down well with our children, and we really felt spoilt for choice.
It was still the first full day at the resout, and we had already decided we had made a good decision in choosing Barcelo Premium at Bavaro Beach for our All Inclusive Dominican Republic Package Holiday!
We spent the morning on the beach, and we could relax a lot more now that our kids (aged 7, 9 and 12) all had their Konfidence Swim Jackets on. Even our 12-year old, now a reasonable swimmer and very indignant that we had bought him one too, volunteered to wear his when he saw the fun and freedom his siblings had in the waves with theirs.
28th July – Having bought floating beds, or lilos, in the hotel shop the previous day and christened them, our children couldn’t wait to get them into the pool again. And what really surprised us, is that no-one at the hotel seemed to mind! I don’t know whether for prices between £6 and £10 we were ripped off, but for the fun our kids had in the pool with them throughout our holiday this was definitely money well spent!
In Part 3 later this week I’ll let you know how we got on with the stall sellers at the hotel, and what we thought of the water sports available.
Dominican Republic Bavaro Beach All Inclusive Holiday
I have just returned from a Dominican Republic Bavaro Beach All Inclusive Holiday with Thomson, and this is the first of a series on what we thought of the resort and the hotel, and the tours which we took while there.
Part 1 – 25th July 2007
We did as we usually do nowadays. We set off the day before our flight as we had taken advantage of an Airport Hotel Car Parking Package at Gatwick Airport. Although we stayed at the Gatwick Travelodge, I noticed that the Parking Express on-Airport Car Park was very close to the South Terminal and I would certainly use them for Airport Parking at Gatwick if I ever had an evening flight and therefore did not need an Airport Hotel.
26th July 2007
We left the Gatwick Travelodge at 06:30 so we could not try out the breakfast which did not start until 07:00. However, I couldn’t help but notice the good deal it offered families. As many trips to the buffet as you like for £7.50. Not especiallly cheap, but with up to 2 children eating free for each full-paying adult it suddenly becomes very good value for one or two parent families.
When we came to check-in we were disappointed to see the Thomson desks had an extremely long queue. However, the check-in staff were being very efficient, and we were relieved to find we actually had one of the cheapest check-in times ever.
The plane itself was a Boeing 767-300, with new leather seats and plenty of legroom (33″). We had had some worries before we boarded about whether Thomsonfly was a good choice of airline, but we were impressed with the quality of the seating and really appreciated the extra legroom.
The food was very good, and the quality of the screens for the in-flight entertainment was the best I had seen in economy class. The easy-to-use touch-sensitive screens meant even the adults could quickly learn the controls, although a few passengers looked around grumpily if people were poking their screens with a little too much vigour.
We arrived at Punta Cana Airport late in the afternoon, and were efficiently shepherded onto the air-conditioned coach. About 45 minutes we were pulling up outside the Barcello Premium Punta Cana hotel at Bavaro Beach (formerly the Superclub Breezes Punta Cana Hotel), and we were immediately impressed by its imposing entrance.
It didn’t take long to check-in, and the reception staff cheerfully re-allocated our party’s two rooms so they were close together (they had been booked independently). We were really pleased to find the rooms as spacious as they looked in the photographs, with two double beds in the bedroom and a full-sized bath in the en-suite. It was reassuring to see the mosquito nets across the patio (they are not so bad here that you need them over the beds) and we were relieved to see the air-conditioning working – not all Dominican Republic Hotels have air conditioning in the bedrooms, but for those of us used to the UK climate it really is a must when choosing a Caribbean Hotel.
What out for Part 2 for our first impressions of the pool, the beach, and breakfast the next morning.
