Language tutors at the University of Bath are inviting local people to try a new language and raise funds for Bath’s special needs school, Three Ways.
Teachers from the University’s Foreign Languages Centre will be running free language sessions from 11am to 2pm on Sunday 16 September and are inviting people to come along for a taster in return for a donation to Three Ways.
The school is fundraising to build a café and shop, to provide students with work experience, life skills and accredited qualifications.
People can try a one hour beginner class in French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese or Spanish, or intermediate classes in German and Italian.
Isabella Stefanutti, Course Director, said: “We hope that local people will come along to have some fun and support a great local cause. They can try as many classes as they like, and have the chance to be taught by our friendly, experienced and qualified language teachers.
“The café will give the children that go to Three Ways the opportunity to get a qualification and work experience, as well as the hope to find a job in the future. It’s a project that can really change lives.”
The language classes will run at the University’s Claverton Down campus in 8 West, level 1, rooms 32, 33 and 34.
