News, developments and articles from Regina Coeli
Emails are generally fairly quick and easy things to write and send off. But it’s more difficult if you haven’t yet mastered the details of the language in which you’re writing. In this article, you’ll read how to write a typical Dutch email and find some helpful standard sentences.
How often do you need to write emails in Italian? If you don’t do it regularly, we have some tips and example sentences to get you started quickly.
In mid-March we hurriedly closed down the institute in connection with the measures taken around COVID-19. That very same week, a group of colleagues put their heads together virtually to come up with a solution for the weeks to come, and within one week we’d switched over completely to online lessons! And that was appreciated.
You’d think that once you’ve taken an Italian course, you’d be able to conjure up a reasonable sentence or two in the language, yet—more often than not—people end up lost for words as soon as an Italian starts busily gesticulating and conversing with them. There you find yourself, with all that grammar and vocabulary knowledge...
Regina Coeli has been open again for course members since the beginning of June. Anyone who has ever been to our institute cannot help but notice how quiet it is now in the building, although there are course members and language trainers present. This is of course because of all the measures we have had to take with respect to the coronavirus. The 1.5 metre rule limits the number of course members we are able to welcome to our institute. However, this is certainly not a disadvantage as far as our course members are concerned!
The Regina Coeli team is getting ready to re-open its doors, and course members are welcome as from Sunday, 7 June. With the necessary guidelines and protocols in place, Regina Coeli will be giving language training courses again at the institute in Vught. At the same time, it will continue to offer online language training courses.
