English classes Autumn 2017 - enroll now

New English Language courses at Together-Razem Centre start in the middle of September. Our courses are recommended by various local organizations focused on social inclusion and also by the Department of Social Protection. We offer classes for all levels of proficiency - from beginners to advanced. Our highly qualified and experienced teachers guarantee a high standard of lessons which are focused greatly on development of practical use of the language and are conducted in small groups (max 13 students). Additionally, for those who want to improve their fluency in spoken language, we offer conversations with a native speaker. On a successful completion of the course and after passing a final exam each participant receives a certificate. We can also provide documentary evidence to Social Welfare Office to certify participation in the language course. The cost of a 12 week course is only €99. At the moment we have places available for intermediate/advanced students on Monday at 6-7.30pm and for beginners/pre-intermediate students on Thursday at 7.30-9pm. More levels and groups are subject to the number of students interested in participation.
