Have you always wanted to learn Spanish but did not know where to start?

Beginner Spanish with instructor Carlos Rabago will be at a new time, 11 a.m., at the Kent Street Activity Centre beginning on Jan. 25.

This six-session course will get you started on basic conversation in a supportive, informal setting.

Kent Street Centre members can practise and refine their newly developed skills in the Conversational Spanish Drop in-group held Thursday mornings at 10 a.m. in the Kent Street library.

Cooking for one can be boring and not very enjoyable. The time from 4-6 p.m. can be particularly challenging.
