World Myths – Ancient Greece, Presented February & March 2019

Hi Gina
Just to say a huge thank you for the mythology course. It was amazingly informative and enthralling from beginning to end and I felt privileged to be there. Intending to sign up for witchcraft next and greatly look forward to it.
Thanks again and best wishes.

Many thanks for the fascinating and joyous course. I enjoyed every minute and was sorry it only lasted six weeks. Fortunately there are other courses!

All good wishes,

I have just completed a six week course on Myths and Legends with Gina May. I thoroughly recommend it. I did not study Classics at school even though I went to a Grammar school so it was new to me and I found it incredibly interesting. The hour and a half seemed to go in a flash as I was so absorbed in the content. Gina is an excellent teacher and makes every week more and more interesting. As I said before I recommend it, go on give it a try you won’t regret it. I am looking forward to a further 6 weeks.

Hi,

Never studied Greek myths before. Loved this course and learnt so much. I had no idea Zeus got up to so much mischief! Gina’s knowledge of this subject is truly amazing!

Witchcraft in the Ancient World, Presented April & May 2019

I have just finished the Ancient Witchcraft course and it was absolutely brilliant. So interesting and informative. I loved this as much as I loved the Myth class. Looking forward to Philosophy in June. Please can you do more courses on the Ancient World?

Art Appreciation – The Renaissance, Presented February & March 2019

Hi Gina

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your Art Appreciation course on Renaissance. It was so interesting and absorbing but you also made it very accessible and fun. I have learnt a lot and can’t wait for your next class on the Pre-Raphaelites in April!

Hi Gina,

If I had not attended this course I would never have known about Michelangelo’s wonderful Pieta which took him two years to sculpt from one solid slab of marble. What an achievement! Thank you so much!

Art Appreciation – The Pre-Raphaelites, Presented April & May 2019

Hi,

I really enjoyed your Art Appreciation class on the Pre-Raphaelite painters. Looking at the images on your large screen meant that we could see every tiny detail of the paintings in glorious colour. I could not have imagined that I could get to know so much about the period and its artists in just six weeks. I’m so glad that I managed to get a space on the Art Appreciation – Baroque class in June! See you there!

Latin for Beginners – Presented February & March 2019

Dear Gina

I wanted to write to you to say what a wonderful and informative time I had on your Latin for Beginners. I couldn’t believe that by the end of the very first lesson I was able to translate some words and sentences. I think it was the way that you linked the teaching to real classics that made the difference for me – will those sailors ever stop fighting?? Thank you so much for the class and I’m really looking forward to Ancient Greek for Beginners!

I really enjoyed the Latin for Beginners course – I didn’t know anything at all when I started but by the end I knew so much!  It went at just the right pace and Gina was so encouraging and explained things so clearly!  I am excited to do Ancient Greek now, and I’ll probably do French as well.  I feel really confident in myself and can’t wait for the new courses to begin.

Latin for Beginners – Presented April & May 2019

Hi Gina

I cannot believe how much I learned at the Latin for Beginners class. I was a little bit nervous at first, but the way you teach it actually makes it seem really easy! I went from knowing nothing at all, to translating short paragraphs in just six weeks! Amazing! I absolutely loved it and looking forward to Latin Improvers in June.

Thank you!

Reading for Pleasure

Just finished a session in the Reading for Pleasure group and have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed reading extracts from “A Thousand and One Nights” over the last few weeks. Reading together like this adds so much more to the enjoyment of the stories. I’m really looking forward to starting on “Wide Sargasso Sea” at the beginning of April. Not only that but the coffee is good and the cake delicious!
