Free English lessons benefit Havebury tenants
A four-week English learning class run by Havebury Housing Partnership has received praise, providing tenants with the opportunity to complete a basic English language course.
The incentive trial classes, held at Havebury's head office at Western Way in Bury St Edmunds, were made available to any tenant over the age of 18, completely free of charge. The classes attracted well over a dozen tenants who all shared the aim of improving their English speaking, writing and reading skills.
The lessons were led by one of Havebury's Customer Service Advisors, Jane Hodges, who also holds a Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA). The four-week mini course of exciting lessons and activities included the alphabet, common English phrases, and understanding basic grammar.
A participating tenant, said:
“This four-week course has been a great experience. These lessons have given us so much and we can take everything that we have learnt into the real world. We just want even more lessons!”
Following the success of the trial lessons, Havebury will continue free English lessons to its tenants in June. For more information and how you can sign up for the classes, keep visiting www.havebury.com
