Farewell to OPAL

Bye bye OPAL.

The OPAL programme for learning languages will cease to exist as such. It started in 2002 and grew into the wonderful progamme we know. And we feel sorry for the number of students and staff who feel a bit sad at the moment. We can however remember all the wonderful presentations that have been given at the Centre and can browse a few OPAL posters and presentation on flickr

OPAL letter for Bob

It will be replaced, we hope, by something better. It will be the same wonderful and enthusiastic team of Language Tutors who will teach you in classes, whether during day time or early evening time. I hope you will be many to join us in the new academic year for more language learning!
