The Language Cafe is a community initiative which BRASS is pleased to support.
It started in the spring of 2018 and has been piloted for a few months with the Syrian refugee families of Bedford (SVPRS).
The Cafe offers informal teaching of English by native English speakers, often retired professionals, such as teachers, engineers, medical staff etc.. Participants can move amongst the themed tables and they can also learn the Highway Code via a slide projection presenta
