Anna De Peron started Anna’s Languages in 2003 in Coolum Beach, with a small Italian Beginners class of four students. Over the past thirteen years it has expanded into a small, independent language centre which now offers Italian, Spanish, and French, with Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced levels.
Classes are held at the Coolum Community Centre, Peregian Beach Community House and the Noosa Leisure Centre. The classes have small groups with a maximum of 7 students per class. Private and semi- private classes are also offered. Day and evening classes are available.
Since its beginning, Anna’s Languages has been committed to providing a standard of excellence for adult students. Italian, Spanish, French courses are suitable for people who want to travel, for personal interest and self development, or simply for those not so young wanting to keep an active mind and meet like minded people!!!
The focus of the Beginners courses is practical conversation which involves a high level of interactive student participation. Grammar is kept at an absolute minimum. The course covers basic situational dialogue such as giving personal information, ordering food and drink, making reservations and asking directions. Students will be speaking their language of choice from day one!!
Intermediate and Advanced levels, for those students who want to seriously study a language, offer a more involved, structured study with greater Grammar content, vocabulary expansion and scaffolded conversation practice. These courses also have a literary component – contemporary and classical works are studied.
The teachers on the language programmes are all qualified, registered, experienced in adult education and have native or near native proficiency and above all – love what they do!!
