As of January 2011, Cactus students can now benefit from the following additions to our range of language course options:
This year, for the first time, we are offering courses at a new centre in Sheffield. Languages available at the centre include Arabic, Mandarin, French, German, Hindi, Italian and Spanish, which will be offered at a variety of levels. Sheffield is one of two centres outside of London that will now offer both 5 and 10 week course formats in 2011 – the other being Brighton.
In 2011, we are also offering 10-week courses at new premises in Canary Wharf. Classes will now be held in modern facilities within the up-market Britannia Hotel – just a 5 minute walk from Canary Wharf tube station. Languages offered at this centre are Arabic, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish.
In an exciting addition to the range of languages that we teach, Farsi lessons are now also being offered. These will initially be available at beginner level, and will take place in our Tottenham Court Road school. Farsi is the main language spoken in Iran, although it also widely spoken in Afghanistan and Tajikistan too, and amongst minority communities in other Middle Eastern countries such as Oman, Bahrain and the UAE.
New course formats
Our ‘general’ 5 and 10 week evening courses have long proved popular with students, but this year we will also be offering the more specialist options of:
• Exam preparation courses (English – IELTS, Spanish – DELE)
• Business language courses
Our Business courses are back by popular demand, and will be available in both 5 and 10 week format. Initially, the courses will be offered in Business English (London Bridge and Notting Hill centres), Business German (London Cannon Street centre) and Business French (London Cannon Street centre) at level 6.
