The Integration Through Language project has been running for more than 6 years now. Located currently at the Bunting Rooms in Colchester, it is co-ordinated by an employee of DNA but relies on the generosity of volunteer teachers and classroom support staff. The students are of all ages and abilities and come from across Europe and the world. The courses are entirely free apart from a voluntary donations for refreshments.
- Integration through language – reading, spoken, writing, listening elements, 12-month 3 times per week programme (3 hours/day) – individually assessed levels with progress measurement/support
- Conversational and discussion classes – aiding language knowledge and promoting community (4 hours/week)
- Colchester the town (and surrounding) – cultural, experience, knowledge, Easter and Summer breaks (8 weeks of 3 to 4 days per week programme)
Smaller hubs, centres have also been set-up across Essex using the same model – but adapted to suit numbers and location.
