Language Institute Regina Coeli provides language training for adults and mainly focuses on people who need the language for their professions. In recent years, we have had more and more requests from parents who have asked us whether their children can take a language course with us for any number of reasons, such as to get on better in school, for an extra challenge or as preparation for an English-language study. In order to meet these requests, we have organised two summer school sessions for youths aged 15 to 18 in the summer holidays.
In response to numerous requests, Regina Coeli started providing language training at weekends this year. Language training at weekends can be a godsend, particularly for the self-employed, expats and people with busy jobs. Two students share their experiences.
Anyone who learns Dutch as a foreign language gets to take on the fun challenge presented by the simple combination of two letters: the word 'er'. ‘Er’ seems to be an insignificant word which doesn’t mean much of anything, yet it is used all over the place in Dutch and you cannot just omit it.
On the heels of the successful launch of the English and Dutch Language Weekends, Regina Coeli has decided to offer French training at weekends this spring. The first weekend in which students can take a personal French course is May 25, 26 and 27.
The French have an expression: simple comme bonjour (a piece of cake). But French greetings are not that simple, especially for foreigners.
