It is planned that this course will be running online, using Teams, for the Autumn Term. This may change, depending on Government guidelines.
The main aim of this course is to encourage and help learners express themselves confidently, fluently and accurately in a range of familiar and less familiar situations and topics.

The main topics are designed for those who have already studied the language for at least 5 years or have spent time in the country and wish to learn more and practise their skills in a relaxed environment. Learners will practise all four skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) with an emphasis on speaking and listening in class as well as expanding vocabulary. By the end of this course learners will have dealt with the following topics amongst others: Greek society now and then, the environment and climate change, technological developments, Greek media and press, social media and young people, stereotypes, education and work.

Please note there will be no teaching sessions on: 28/10/21,

Abingdon and Witney College is subject to Ofsted regulation and is required to work with all its students to make sure they understand Government initiatives around Safeguarding, Prevent and Fundamental British Values. Information on these matters will be shared with you during your course.

You will also be asked to complete monitoring paperwork, which helps us to deliver course content to the highest quality.

We are committed to ensuring that you have a positive learning experience and will therefore be reviewing all our classes after the first session to ensure learners are enrolled on a course that is at the right level for them. Enrolment numbers to the courses are reviewed regularly. To avoid disappointment it is advised to enrol early. Course viability decisions are made two weeks prior to the course start date. Any course changes are communicated via email so please ensure you check your email accounts running up to the course start date. On the first week of the course you will be required to bring along one form of identification. This could be a passport, driving licence, debit/credit card or National Insurance card.

Courses can fill fast, so please enrol early to avoid disappointment. Decisions on whether a course is to run are made two weeks prior to the start date - an email will be sent to you should there be changes to your course or if it is cancelled. Please check your inbox leading up to your course, including the junk folders. For anyone without an email account, our Admissions team will phone you instead.

For the first week of the course you will need to bring a valid form of identification; this includes passport, driving licence, debit/credit card, Birth Certificate or National Insurance card.

A text book may be required (Average cost £20 - £25). You may also like to buy a dictionary.

Courses offered by the college are fully or partly funded by the Government and the published fee takes account of this funding.

Before starting a course, the College is required to check you meet conditions relating to that funding, e.g. age, residency status within the UK/EEA, prior qualification level and employment status. In some circumstances (such as with online enrolments), these checks can only be completed after you have enrolled and paid.

If you are unable to pay in full for this course at the time of enrolment, and the course tuition fee is £300 or more, an instalment plan is available. If this is your preference, please do not enrol online but rather call the Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to enrol.

Once enrolled, Admissions will take the first instalment payment from you and pass on your details to the Finance team who will email you to set-up your payment plan. Please return a fully completed instalment plan to Finance as failure to do so could result in being withdrawn from your course.

The 19+ full fee button displays the full fee that may apply. As the rules on fee reduction are complicated, we would encourage you to talk to our Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to discuss these options. You can also visit the Course Fees & Finance page under 'Info Centre' at the top of the page.
