Spanish Evening Classes

UPDATE: Adult Evening Language Classes

Thomas Rotherham College offers a wide range of adult language classes in the evening, which usually start in September of each year and last for 24 weeks.

With the Covid-19 situation, the College has decided to postpone the start of those courses. We will resume our classes when we feel that we can do so in a timely and safe manner.

Please keep checking our website and social media for further updates in coming weeks.

¡Muchas gracias! Merci beaucoup! Grazie!
