In Rasharkin, a 20-week English course is being held on Wednesdays (7pm - 8.30pm).

In Coleraine, Polish language and culture classes are running from 7-8:30pm in River House, Castle Place.

Organiser, Tomek Czuprynski, from the Building Communities Resource Centre, said: “The aim of the English classes is to provide newcomers with the opportunity to improve their language skills needed in daily life and work.

“The Polish classes on the other hand are intended to increase participants’ understanding of the basics of the Polish language while introducing them to the richness of the Polish culture.”

Housing Executive Area Manager Mark Alexander said: “We’re delighted to support these English and Polish classes, which brings people together each week to learn and improve their language together in a relaxed

environment.”
