English classes

Bray People - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

A new pro­gramme of con­ver­sa­tional English classes for mi­grants has started in St. Fer­gal’s Ju­nior School as part of the wider Bray Fáilte Is­teach com­mu­nity project run by Bray Area Part­ner­ship.

This new pro­gramme ex­pands the project to a sec­ond venue – the orig­i­nal pro­gramme has been run­ning since 2009 with in cen­tral Bray – and brings the num­bers cur­rently tak­ing part to more than 85 learn­ers and 20 vol­un­teer tu­tors.

The idea be­hind Fáilte Is­teach is that peo­ple from the lo­cal com­mu­nity vol­un­teer their time to teach prac­ti­cal con­ver­sa­tional English to peo­ple from other coun­tries who live and work in Bray. Classes are free and take place in an in­for­mal, friendly café style set­ting through small group con­ver­sa­tions over a cup of tea.

Prizes and bur­saries are awarded to win­ners and Bray Lions Club will spon­sor its can­di­date through­out the com­pe­ti­tion.

Young peo­ple who wish to par­tic­i­pate should con­tact Frank Corr, Bray Lions Club on (086) 8274710 or at fcorr100@gmail.com.
