Islamaphobia Self-defense Workshops

No Comments Courses, Voices Have Spoken

Given the rise in Islamophobic rhetoric and, sometimes verbal and physical attacks, our clients have encountered especially in recent months, Swansea Bay REC has partnered with a local self-defense trainer, M Ali Akbor to provide a workshop of practical advice and training on how to protect yourself against attacks which may from time to time happen.

The sessions will be targeted separately for men and women and commence on Wednesday 24th August 2016 at our premises in Swansea. Depending on demand the workshops will be continued on a monthly basis in the future. Said the Chief Executive, Taha Idris, “this is just another example of Swansea Bay REC rising to the challenge of providing practical support to those in our communities who feel vulnerable and need the confidence to get out of difficult situations without becoming part of the problem themselves”.

If you are interested in taking part in the sessions please contact SBREC staff by telephone on 01792 457035 or email: Please bear in mind that places will be limited so book it as early as possible.

Free English Language Classes at Swansea University

Free English Language support classes
Thursday 24th January to Thursday 21st March 2013 (THURSDAYS ONLY)
Swansea University – Taliesin Extension Building

ELTS, the department of Swansea University which supports overseas students and provides training for people to be English Language teachers, is again running its popular free English Language support classes from 24th January until the 21st March. The classes are run informally, so there is no registration or forms to fill out, and participants can attend as many, or as few classes as they wish. If participants come to most of the classes, we will issue an attendance certificate.

On this occasion, we are funded to reimburse (in cash) daily bus travel within Swansea (we need to see the ticket or pass).
These free classes are provided for any non-native speaker at pre-intermediate level and upper intermediate level, or above. There are two separate classes, running at the same time. Pre-intermediate students have a basic ability to communicate and understand, but can make much improvement in all areas. Upper-intermediate students have an effective command of English, but this is not perfect, and vocabulary can be extended, grammar fine-tuned and speaking and listening ability can be consolidated.

The teachers taking the classes are all full time Masters students at the university, but will always be monitored by experienced lecturers from ELTS.
Joining the class will give valuable practice in English, and will introduce participants to the wider community of English Language learners in Swansea. And, it’s all free!
