Albanian school is one of Shpresa founding services and usually takes place on Saturdays and Sundays in North and East London. The classes are organised in groups and sub-groups according to age, background education and each child’s current understanding of the Albanian language.
Teaching Albanian in a practical context is the primary focus, but the classes do not stop there. Sharing knowledge and promoting Albanian culture is just as important for heritage and identity. Our carefully designed curriculum covers history and heritage, and is further enhanced through poetry, performance, events and song – the results of which we all enjoy at annual celebrations like Albania and Kosovo Independence Day.
There is growing interest from families and children to understand and embrace their culture through these classes, and we witness the impact and success of those attending Albanian school every single day.
