On Wednesday 19th October we attended the Global Opportunities Fair at the Brynmor Jones Library, alongside our colleagues from Global Hull.

St Mary’s Primary, Beverley and The Boulevard School, Hull

We are very pleased to announce our new partnerships with Saint Mary’s Church of England Primary School in Beverley, and The Boulevard Academy in Hull. Our teachers will be delivering regular cultural activity classes on Wednesdays and Thursdays from the beginning of November.

In Person Classes Resume

Following the arrival of six new volunteer teachers from China, we are very happy and proud to have returned to in-person Chinese classes. The levels range from complete beginners to advanced plus and mostly take place in the Global Hull Language Learning Centre at the University of Hull’s Brynmor-Jones Library.
