Sign up now for a free taster session in holiday languages. The French, Italian and Russian evening classes will be held at Brooke Weston. The sessions, aimed at those who are holidaying abroad and want to brush up on essential language skills, are part of an 11-week course. As an introductory offer the first week's tuition is being offered free of charge.
Tutor, Elizabeth, has spent many years teaching and working in Italy and France, and has also spent time studying in Russia. She tailors her classes around the needs of the students, and writes all her own study materials. Students do not need to buy books or other resources and the classes provide a friendly and informal atmosphere in which to learn.
Elizabeth said: 'The course is based on conversation and relates to the everyday situations encountered when on holiday.'
"I would now be confident with things like ordering a meal or buying train tickets abroad."
James Heppell, Italian student
A student in her existing Italian class said: 'Elizabeth is an excellent and entertaining teacher. It's informal, really instructive and definitely friendly. She builds up information in a logical progressive way and you get lots of anecdotal examples. I'd be quite confident in situations abroad. Elizabeth has a love of languages and she pools lots of information and makes it interesting.'
