A few friends had studied with CALAT over the years and had nothing but good things to say about it so I decided to enrol on a photography course and am really pleased I did. I can honestly say I enjoyed every moment of it! The lessons were well paced and our tutor was brilliant, giving us space to explore our creativity with just the right amount of professional input when we needed it, the other students were great as well and we formed a great online social group to share our work and encourage each other…it’s was amazing watching us all become better photographers.
I really appreciate Michael, our tutor, for putting my mind at ease and helping me truly understand the world of maths. Being from another culture and English not being my first language I was worried about how I would get on, but my fears have been put aside and I am so happy with the progress I have made studying at CALAT. If Michael can help me and make me confident with numbers, then I am sure he can do the same for you too!
I have been so happy with the lessons our tutor, Dolores, has delivered and throughout my time with CALAT I have seen a significant improvement in my Spanish, my pronunciation and understanding in particular. I'm a single mum so studying can present some challenges but the pace of the lessons and a fun learning environment make it so much easier. Now I can help my daughter with her Spanish homework but I also work with some Spanish speaking construction workers and they have all said how impressed they are with my skills...my aim is to become a translator so to hear that is amazing! Yo aprecio toda la ayuda. Significa mucho para mí.
I started my Drawing and Painting course in September 2019, it's something I've always wanted to do and was glad I got the chance to do it at CALAT. I didn't know what to expect, but the Tutor was really helpful, professional and patient and my group were all really friendly and very supportive. My confidence in painting has grown and positive feedback from my tutor is always welcome! I really enjoy attending the course and will continue to do so. Thank you Mark.
We had a lot of fun embarking on our maths journey with Michael, he made learning fun but, more importantly it was relevant so we could use it in our everyday lives. Lessons were adapted to suit us all and we were given the courage and confidence to persevere even during lockdown when we had online lessons. After passing my Functional Skills level 1, I felt ready to move on to to my GCSE which I was so proud to pass! As a mature student I could not recommend CALAT enough.
My experience of learning Spanish with CALAT has been really positive, I really enjoy the group learning experience and watching us all progress steadily throughout the course. Overall support from CALAT has been great and this course has built my confidence and dreams of visiting Spain and other Spanish speaking countries.
I have learned so much on my Art History course which I do online at home. As well as looking at some magnificent paintings, our excellent tutor, Mark, puts the artists studied into context with the world in which they lived, with lots of details about the history and culture of the era. We also learn about painting techniques and how everything connects up. I particularly enjoy our (now resumed) gallery visits, after which each class member analyses and presents a chosen work to the class.
Before I came to CALAT I knew practically nothing about art, I wasn't very good at it at school so was a little anxious about how I would be, so much so that I nearly turned around and left on my first day, I'm so glad I didn't! I love using all the different art media like pastels, acrylics and watercolours. The museum and gallery visits are really interesting whether in person or online and Mark is excellent at conveying all the history behind the art.
