Event description

Description

FOR U3A MEMBERS ONLY - as places are limited we can only accept one attendee per U3A for this pilot.

This workshop is for U3A teachers, leaders and facilitators of language groups and for anyone thinking of starting a new language group. It deals with all languages at all levels. We aim to help you to review the format of your sessions, to extend the repertoire of learning activities, to share ideas on suitable learning materials and to attempt to address some of the issues of learning languages within the U3A. Participants will be expected to take an active part.

Lunch and tea and coffee during the day are provided.
