I’m a parent to three children and after an extremely tough few years, I was re-housed within Rutland.

I feel stronger and more confident and I’ve met some nice new friends.

I would strongly urge anybody to join a course at RALS and get something back for the better in your life and improve your confidence and self-esteem.

I am in the advanced Italian Class

My experience is that through having attended the adult education classes my Italian has improved beyond my wildest expectations.

I now converse comfortably face to face and on the phone, whilst thinking in Italian.

Working Student

Advanced Italian

At my interview I was asked about what I had been doing. I mentioned I had college on a Thursday and they were impressed with what I had been doing.

It has taken a little while to do but it is worth it in the end.

I enjoy coming to see my friends in class and interact with them.

First day at work tomorrow!
