London, United Kingdom, August 23, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Many readers of Families magazine may never have heard the name Eurocentres, but within the language travel industry they are well known as one of the industry leaders who for the last 60 years have set the standard in language learning. Eurocentres, actually a Swiss not for profit foundation, opened its first school in 1948 and Eurocentres now teaches English in places as far afield as Bournemouth and Brisbane or Cambridge and Cape Town.
2008 is not only Eurocentres 60th birthday but September 16th 2008 sees the launch of their part-time courses aimed specifically at au pairs in Central and South East London. Au pairs will now be able to study 3 days a week (1.5 hours day) at Eurocentres’ two London schools in Victoria and Lee Green and make use of all the school facilities, study for Cambridge and IELTS (an examination required by all non-English speaking students wishing to go to a UK university) and make use of on-line learning materials after class and all for the price of £299 for a 13 week term. Eurocentres’ Deputy Head of Sales, Stefan Green said ‘Eurocentres has been offering high quality language courses for students from overseas for many years and we are really excited to be able to now offer the same opportunity to au pairs working in London who don’t have time to take one of our full –time courses.’
To launch their new courses Eurocentres will be holding an Open day on September 2nd (from 1:30 - 15:00) at the London Central school in Victoria – au pairs and families are most welcome to come for a tour of the school and a glass of wine. Students will also be able to get a 15% discount voucher for their first course. Plus if you bring your au pair along you can enter their draw to win a two week foreign language course at one of Eurocentres French schools (as well as English Eurocentres teaching 6 other languages – in the country they are spoken). So if you fancy brushing up your French at Eurocentres Paris please come and join them. For more details contact Stefan Green on sgreen [at] eurocentres.com,
