First National Study Day for Languages

The Trust is working with language Subject Advisers Heather Westrup and Dorothy Newman to bring U3A the first National Study Day for Languages to be held on 27th March at Aston University in Birmingham.
Heather said, “Our unique U3A language learning context means that we don’t turn away prospective learners, so small U3As need to cope with “mixed ability”. Other groups want to know how to manage without an “expert” leader. Groups at higher levels enjoy suggestions for conversation sessions while learners new to a language need ideas for retaining that all important vocabulary. All relish the time to exchange ideas about language activities and games”.
This study day is aimed particularly at supporting U3A group convenors to share ideas and best practice. It is seen as a pilot for more such days on different subjects.
