The Poble Nou de Benitatxell has renewed the agreement with the international school Lady Elizabeth School to promote the learning of English of the children of the municipality. The novelty is that on this occasion the training is open to adults and free of charge whenever the attendance at 80% of the classes is justified. In the absence of specific schedule, the school dates will be Tuesdays from March to June beginning March 5.
The agreement signed by the Department of Education, by Jorge Pascual and the coordinator of the educational center, Daniel Wolff, takes a giant step by encouraging adults to learn a language as fundamental as English without any economic cost.
«In total 30 places are offered and those interested should fill out an online form to reserve their place before 22 February of 2019. The first to fill in the form will be those who will get the places. Each student must pay 100 euros on the first day that will be returned at the end of the course if they complete 12 or more classes » explained the Councilor for Education, Jorge Pascual.
For children between 5 and 12 years
Minors will also benefit from a discount of 20% in an intensive English course for boys and girls from 5 to 12 years that is currently taught on Saturday morning from 10: 00 to 13: 00 hours. In addition, additional discounts of 10% will be applied when two or more brothers join the course.
Pascual thanked the good predisposition of the school «When supporting his suggestion to open up to adults and encourage free learning of an important language in the Marina Alta, so diverse in nationalities.»
