Award winning language school La Academia in Cheadle is offering heavily subsidised English as a foreign language courses for Ukrainian refugees.

“The people of Cheshire and Manchester are being incredibly generous in opening their hearts and their homes to families forced to flee their homeland,” La Academia’s Andrea Nicholls says.

“The ability to communicate and the right of every voice to be heard are embedded in our values. So, doing our bit was an easy decision. Our face-to- face English as a foreign language courses at the school will help break down language barriers. And they’ll also provide a safe and welcoming environment for students of all ages to meet and socialise with others in the same situation.”

At La Academia, we’ve taken inspiration from the way the people of Cheshire and Greater Manchester have embraced the Homes for Ukraine scheme.

Cheshire Live reports that “A total of 479 kind-hearted Cheshire people have offered the hand of friendship to refugees. The county that scored highest that neighbours Cheshire is Greater Manchester with 693 sponsors.”

We look forward to making a productive and long-lasting impact on our Ukrainian students making temporary or permanent homes locally.
