My name is Angie Craus, and I moved to Leicester from East Yorkshire in November 2012.
I had lived in Yorkshire all my life so moving to Leicester was a very big change for me.
I noticed the WEA one day while stood at the bus stop. I began looking at all the courses advertised and thought all the spare time I had , not yet having a job, I could improve my education. I decided I would enrol on English and spelling courses.
I had never done any sort of learning since leaving school, so I was a little anxious about being in a classroom. I was so wrong. The teaching staff put me at ease, making me very enthusiastic to learn and concentrate again.
I have now passed two levels of my English, and will be working towards the next part starting in September. I am also carrying on with my Spelling Booster class which I also enjoy very much.
I really look forward to my classes and joining the other students in them.
When I have completed my English qualification I will look at other courses.
