Henricon Education Services (HES) has been set up in Henrick City in the state of North Carolina.
In a move that will be welcomed by local tourism operators, HES will offer two-week lessons to tourists.
The services will be offered from Thursday and Friday evenings, and will cost €15 for adults and €15.50 for children.
HES is an education service for tourists, but also for teachers, who are needed to assist with teaching the courses in the schools.
“This is a great opportunity for us to be able to provide more professional development opportunities for our teachers, so we’re looking forward to this,” said J. Scott Johnson, the head of HES.
“We have a lot of young people that are interested in learning about North Carolina, and this is the first opportunity for them to go to a school that they want to go into,” Johnson added.
The school is located at the University of North Carolinas campus in downtown Raleigh.
Students who take the courses will receive the certificate in the first month of their first year.
According to Johnson, there will also be a second session for new students and those with special needs.
“There’s no set timetable for when we’re going to start to see some of these new students come to us,” he said.
The school also has a large library and other learning resources.
This is the latest in a series of new services offered by HES, which will be offering online courses from this year.
“The new HES course will allow them to learn more about our state, and it’s going to be a good opportunity for our community,” said Johnson.
Johnson said that the services will help in attracting students and local businesses to the area.
“We’ve had a lot more interest in coming to this, and now we have the opportunity to offer some professional development services to those that are coming to the region,” he added.
