English as a Second language will be available for private tuition, and I hope to offer classes in the near future. Classes can also be arranged privately for firms and organisations who require English tuition for their employees.

Learn languages in your local? What a refreshing idea!
A local language company is running language classes at the local pub.
A local pub and language company are working together to bring language learning to the rural community.
French and Spanish beginners classes are being run at the Red Lion Pub in Digby, organised and taught by tutors of HS Language Services of Scopwick, Lincolnshire (www.hslanguageservices.co.uk).
“Many people work in Lincoln and Sleaford and do not want to return again for their evening class. We decided to bring language classes to their doorstep in a relaxed and informal environment,” explains Helen Shaw, founder of HS Language Services.
The courses run at the Red Lion for 10 weeks, starting Monday 17th September 2007 for French Beginners and Tuesday 18th September 2007 for Spanish Beginners. They cost £50 per person. All resources are included.
Courses are also running in Dunston for French Improvers and Spanish Beginners.
For further information, contact Helen Shaw on 01526 888222 or firstname.lastname@example.org
HS Language Services is a local business providing language tuition for local people.

Eddie Lawler (Lawler Language Services) now runs level 1 and level 3 summer schools, open to everyone. This was an ideal opportunity for me to update my German skills, so I enrolled on the level 3 course. It was a bargain at £400 (we had to find our own way there) for full board, in a fantastic hotel.
There is a full study programme, with lessons in the morning, and usually a trip out in the afternoon. The course content is optional. We covered Science, the local area, Identity, Architecture and Literature as well as taking trips to Erfurt, Cospeda, the Planetarium and, of course, the local pubs and restaurants.
The thought of going abroad alone to do a course where you know no one may seem a little daunting, but it has been a fabulous week and I have met some lovely people. I would certainly recommend the course for next year (indeed I will be attending it!).

I would be very grateful for any feedback at all, the review should only take a couple of minutes to complete.
Hope you all enjoy the summer.

Friday 13th July - Wine tasting at Scopwick Village Hall
30th Jul - 2nd August - No teaching this week, enquiries and bookings will still be taken by telephone
11th - 18th August - No teaching this week, although bookings will still be taken by telephone (01526 888222)
We are offering 8 courses for adults from September, daytime as well as evening. We are branching out to Welton and Washingborough. I find this very exciting, and hope that they will be well attended.
These courses will not just be taught by me, but by some excellent tutors who will be joining HS Language Services in September. I look forward to introducing them more formally very soon.

This ALL London event spoke to me, however, and I took the opportunity to attend this meeting at the Italian Cultural Institute in Belgrave Square.
I attended two sessions: Alternative Accreditation and Primary Language teaching. Both sessions were extremely useful. The AGM was also included in the programme and many issues surrounding language learning were discussed. The main concerns are GCSE examinations and the severity of marking and the quality and provision of Primary language teaching. More information can be found here.
I look forward to attending more of these events.

We have just had our annual twinning visit this weekend, which has been hugely successful. It is very heartwarming to see French and English together, communicating in a mix of French, English and gesture. It would be great if more families became involved with their local twinning association - everyone gets so much out of it in terms of confidence, friendship, communication.
We had a trip to Burghley House on the Saturday, with a Race Night in the evening. We then had a morning decorating Easter eggs on Sunday, with a visit to Lincoln in the afternoon, and an evening of games, including a Beetle Drive.
It is our turn to visit our French friends in France next year. If you would like to join us, or for further information, please telephone Rosa on 01526 322292.
Details of other twinning associations in the area can be found here.

I would also like to make the language classes available to more areas of the county, and I am very excited about the use of a pub to hold the courses in. This is really bringing languages into the community, working well for both parties and creating a more informal atmosphere. This is certainly an idea I will be pursuing for future courses.
Primary schools should now be putting their plans into place for languages, with a view to implementing this by 2010. HSLS certainly hopes to increase the number of schools it serves with our successful programme for languages in Primary.
