Brush up on your language skills in Littlehampton

Fancy French? Tempted by Turkish? Enjoy a free Language Taster Day in Littlehampton next month with fun taster sessions.

The event takes place on Thursday September 6, from 10am to 2pm, at The NEW Learning Shop, 88 High Street, Littlehampton.

It’s one of the first events to be run by Aspire Sussex Limited, formerly known as the West Sussex Adult and Community Learning Service, which moves away from West Sussex County Council at the start of September.

The free taster sessions taking place are:

• French (beginners), 10.15am to 10.45am

• French (advanced), 10.15am to 10.45am

• Spanish, 11.15am to 11.45am

• German, 11.15am to 11.45am

• Italian, 12.30pm to 1pm

• Turkish, 12.30am to 1pm

Visitors can also enjoy free Mediterranean themed light refreshments, free entry to a quiz, and will be entered into a prize draw to win a course voucher.

West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for Education and Schools Peter Griffiths said: “Life long learning offers something for everyone, whether it’s a new qualification or job skill, or something for your personal development.

“Learning a new language is not only fun, but could also open up opportunities for a new career. If you’d like to find out more, why not come along and try one of the taster sessions. Places are limited, so book yours now.”

Places on the taster sessions will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. To book your place in advance contact 01903 722155.
