Diane Cidade - Spanish

"I’m studying for a degree in modern languages with a focus on Spanish and French through the Open University. Unfortunately, due to Scilly’s remote location, it has been nearly impossible for me to attend any face-to-face sessions on the mainland. So my course has focussed mostly on the written form.

"The Lifelong Learning Spanish course has allowed me to further develop my speaking skills, while also reinforcing the grammar which I have been learning through my degree course. The Skype format worked wonderfully and our tutor was incredibly supportive of every student in the class, paying particular attention to individual needs and modifying lessons so that all learners, regardless of their prior knowledge, were being challenged without feeling overwhelmed.

"I greatly look forward to another Spanish course being offered sometime soon and hope that similar language courses might be considered in the future."
