Course Description

Chess is the most wonderful game ever invented. It teaches people about strategy, visualising problems before they arise, concentration, using one's imagination and making decisions under time pressure. Somebody once described it as 'a sea in which a fly can swim and an elephant can drown'.  This course teaches you the rules of the game of chess and the basic strategic concepts. You'll learn about the value of the pieces and how you can get them to work together. You'll learn about checkmate, stalemate and the importance of keeping your King safe. At the end of the course you will be able to play a game of chess and you will be ready to join a chess club or play online on the many chess sites
