Creating mouthwatering Greek delicacies or developing a passion for singing are just some of the exciting new skills Tasmanians can learn this Autumn through LINC Tasmania’s LearnXpress courses.
The Autumn LearnXpress guide, published in newspapers tomorrow, details a range of courses in leisure and lifestyle activities, as well as work and life skills.
Tutors say that courses are a great way to meet new people and uncover hidden talents, and insist that there is always something new to learn and discover.
“The happiest people I know are life-long learners who are connected with their community, always trying amazing new things,” Daniel Townsend, Contemporary Singing Group course tutor said.
“This is what adult education is all about and it’s why I love it.”
LearnXpress offers popular courses across Art and Craft, Computing, Fitness and Wellbeing, Sport, Languages, Home, Lifestyle, DIY and more.
The Autumn guide includes many new courses, such as the Greek Cooking and Antipasto at Home courses on offer in the South.
“Students will be able to experience Greece through its diverse and sense-igniting cuisine,” tutor Georgina Tsinoglou said.
“Every island has a specialty, and every specialty has a story.
“Greek cuisine isn’t just food to be enjoyed, it is an entire culture to be experienced.”
Other new courses in the South include Developing Stress Resilience, Enhance your Sleep, Food for Mood and Chocolates for Easter. There are also new tennis courses, designed for students to have fun and improve their fitness.
New courses in the North include Rose Hip Syrup Making, Exotic Indian Cooking, Home Brewing and Tree Pruning.
Courses are also available in the North West and cover the popular topics of art & craft, languages, fitness & wellbeing and computing.
The LearnXpress course guide is available in the Mercury and Examiner newspapers on Saturday, 4 February.
