Judith Addison - GCSE Italian A*
“I am absolutely delighted to have achieved an A*and thoroughly enjoyed the course at Blackburn College.
“I believe that it is so important to keep your mind active and learning a new language has been a fantastic way of keeping my brain challenged and stimulated.
“Before working for Hyndburn Borough Council, I gained a degree in French and Latin from the University of Leeds so have always had an aptitude for languages. I initially enrolled on the Beginners Italian evening class at Blackburn College and was encouraged to move on to the next level and study for GCSE Italian.
“My tutor at Blackburn College went out of her way to boost my confidence and show me that I could go on to achieve a GCSE in Italian. It has been a challenge and I have worked very hard - to achieve such a fantastic mark is wonderful.
“I would definitely encourage others to embark on a new challenge. Not only have I achieved another qualification, I have also developed ambitions to pursue further courses in Italian and intend to enrol on the next level which is equivalent to AS level.”
