We’re very lucky in the UK West Midlands to have the Brasshouse Language Centre where eager wanna-be linguists (like me) can learn up to 30 languages at various levels. (btw if you’re reading this Birmingham City Council – please please give the Brasshouse their own website – and give my Russian teacher Taisia (Таисия) a raise – she’s a great teacher and always provides follow-up and references by email if I’ve missed a session).
The 2011-2012 academic year brochure should be available to download soon.
I’ve been sent the Slavonic course list for next academic year and thought the breakdown for the number of courses (including tasters) was interesting:
Not sure why Hungarian is included in this list of otherwise Slavonic languages, and there are a few notable omissions such as Bulgarian, Macedonian, Ukrainian, etc (oh I really dislike using “etc.” at the end of a list – it means I don’t know what else to write, it’s a bit like a song fading rather than having a end. I won’t do it again I promise, and I’m only using it this time to illustrate a point – honest! ;).
