English & Culture for 50Plus

The 50Plus programme is offered eight times per year and is offered for more mature learners who wish to combine learning English with their interest in learning about culture. 

On this course, you follow guided excursions to places of deep historic cultural interest, as well as participate in social and leisure activities of your choice. The course will give you the opportunity to get to know the rich culture of York and England with a focus on history, art, architecture, literature and cuisine.

English & Culture for 50PLUS programs are run in collaboration with our sister organization York Associates.
