Attend a language class

Our language classes are a popular choice for language learners.

There are many benefits in learning as part of a group:

  • you will be led by an experienced teacher

  • you will follow a well-designed programme of study

  • having a scheduled engagement will ensure that you study each week

  • you will have opportunities to interact with other students, which will develop your language skills further

  • you can network, and even make friends, with the other students

Access our self-study resources

You can access our self-study resources, located in the Language Learning Zone, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

This is a great way for you to learn or develop a language if you:

  • cannot commit to a scheduled time for your class each week

  • want the flexibility to tailor your language studies to your individual needs and learning style

  • want to learn a language outside term time or are interested in studying a language not offered in our classes
