What: Free ‘Holiday Spanish’ taster classes
Where: Penny Lane, Brunswick Business Park & Formby
When: Tuesday, April 24, 2012
IF you’re planning a summer holiday in Spain, or simply want to learn Spanish, free taster classes are being held – and you’re invited.
The Liverpool and Merseyside events, run by www.speakfluent.co.uk, take place next week and are open to everyone.
And as well as learning the lingo, you’ll also get the chance to support one of the region’s most important charities, Claire House Children’s Hospice.
Principal teacher Tim Smith, who provides supportive and enjoyable Spanish group and personal tuition, will again be raising money for the Wirral hospice.
A fund-raising raffle will be held for the charity and one lucky winner will receive a half-term of group Spanish classes from Tim.
The free tasters take place at the following locations:
Brunswick Business Park
12.00 noon on Tuesday, April 24. Meet up at Bean, 104 Brunswick Business Park, L3 4BJ.
8.00pm on Tuesday, April 24. Meet up at Penny Lane Development Trust, 70 Penny Lane, L18 1DG.
6pm on Monday, April 30. Meet up at The Bier House, St Peter’s Church, Green Lane, Formby L37 3DL.
Tim said: “We’ve been running Spanish classes in north and south Liverpool since last September and our groups, which are enjoyable, supportive and affordable, are going from strength to strength.
“Learning a language like Spanish is a great way to make new friends, improve job prospects – or just make your summer holidays abroad more enjoyable.
“Dozens of our learners will be heading off to Spanish shores this summer, equipped to use their Spanish. It’s so rewarding and makes a holiday so much more enjoyable when you can speak the local language.”
“We’re again raising money for Claire House, a charity that we’ve supported before. It’s a cause close to the hearts of many people in Merseyside and offers an incredible service. We’re proud to be supporting them.”
Groups are available for learners of all abilities, from absolute beginners to intermediate and advanced.
They also work with business leaders and their staff to help them improve their Spanish skills and boost sales and customer service.
Wirral-born Tim, aged 40, has 10 years’ teaching experience; lived and worked in Spain for seven years; is fully Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) approved; and is registered with the General Teaching Council (GTC).
