The Autumn term in Language Beyond Borders has officially started! Our first group of students from Khalil in the West Bank, Palestine, started studying with us last week and they are off to a great start!
But what do they think of their classes?
“It was great, I loved it!” Rawan, Student.
“I have to say I’m amazed at the calibre of student, their English was good and they all had terrific personalities!” Nick, Conversation Partner.
“I kept smiling for a couple of hours after I’d finished the class on Sunday!” Alexandra, Teacher.
We’d like to thank all involved for the hard work that has gone into these classes, from students and teachers, to Class Coordinators and partners, everyone involved plays a small part in improving the lives of people unfairly impacted by conflict or fleeing persecution.
We can’t wait to see how much progress will have been made by these students when they complete their level assessments at the end of the term!
This term, the starting dates of the various groups are staggered: in a few weeks a second group in Palestine, this time in Gaza, will start their classes; after that, our three UK programmes will get off to a start; and then our privately sponsored students, from Ghana to Papua New Guinnea and many places inbetween, will start their classes.
Good luck to everyone this term!
