Algilez Lessons

University of the Third Age (U3A), Bournemouth

We ran our first course of 20 lessons (1 ½ hours per week, total 30 hours) from January to June 2016.

Although the class was very small, by the end of the course, the 'students' (all retired people) were able to write good quality essays and have reasonable conversations.  Test scores were over 85%.

We started the course again in January 2017 with a few minor changes (suggested by the first class) that were intended to increase the speaking content and make the course a bit more fun!  Unfortunately class numbers were too small to sustain the class.

I'm pleased to report that the Algilez App is now available for Android.

The app is suitable for all mobile devices which use the Android operating system.  It is intended that the app for Apple devices will follow soon.

The app provides links to most of the Algilez website pages and documents and, most importantly, contains the  on-line Algilez lessons. The free app contains lessons 1 to 4.  The full course of 20 lessons will be through a paid app.  The on-line lessons provide an ideal way for individuals to start learning Algilez using their mobile devices.  They are based on the normal classroom lessons, but modified for self learning.  See the Algilez Forum below for more information and updates.
