Around the world in ten days matters
Who is this course for?
This course is for adults with learning difficulties. Complete beginners are welcome.
Each week you will be learning lots of fun things about a different country. We will sample some of the food they like eating, listen to their music, look at their money and have a go at their traditional dancing and language!

“I love teaching and giving people the opportunity to do things for themselves instead of someone doing it for them. As a child I experienced things being snatched from my hands because I looked awkward (just being left-handed!) and made a promise that I would never do that to anyone else”.
