MURCIA´S Department of Youth is offering 440 spaces to young people to improve their conversational English, French and German skills.
The courses will be offered for free through the department’s 16 different centres.
Registration is open to anyone between the ages of 12 and 30 registered resident in Murcia as a “complement to academic training” said Councillor Rebeca Perez.
Perez said that the project, first launched in 2010, aims to respond to the demands of young people as well as comply with European Union guidelines on linguistic diversity.
She stressed the importance of learning other languages: “Both for reasons of personal and professional mobility and to help gain intercultural contacts and mutual understanding.”
In total, 22 courses will be held, 16 of them for children between the ages of 12 and 17 and the rest for young people between the ages of 18 and 30.
Registrations can be submitted through the ‘Informajoven’ website or at any cultural/ youth centre.
The registration deadline is Friday September 29.
