Nuala to Be Talk of the Town as She Launches Day of Languages


TOP Ulster comedienne Nuala McKeever returns to Queen's University tomorrow to brush up on her language skills.

A Spanish graduate from the university, Nuala will take time out from her busy schedule to help launch the European Day of Languages at Queen's.

Organised by the Language Centre as part of 2001 European Year of Languages, the day is aimed at encouraging everyone to think about broadening their horizons and learn a new language or polish up on a language they haven't used for some time.

As part of the university's commitment to working with the business community, the Language Centre, which is organising the initiative in conjunction with the Institute of Lifelong Learning and the School of Languages, Literature and Arts, is offering an online language course for local businesses.

Queen's was the first UK university to install the revolutionary language learning system, which means that businesses can either send their employees to the university or, alternatively, they can learn a new language at their own desk.

Pam McIntyre, the centre's manager, says the system allows those who often don't have the time to attend Queen's to have their work assessed online by university staff, without the bother of actually moving from their office.

"Businesses, keen to develop their employees' language skills, can use tailor-made courses which not only suit their individual requirements, but enable the learner to work at their own pace,'' she said.

During the event, on September 26, visitors to the Language Centre in the Peter Froggatt Centre will get the chance to sample what's on offer at Queen's.

Themed rooms for a number of languages including Spanish, Italian and Chinese Mandarin, will be staffed by members of the School of Languages, Literatures and Arts and native speakers.
