Languages

Whether through technology, media, or travel – we are all becoming increasingly connected as global citizens. Learning a new language provides you with a new appreciation of diverse cultures and a new skill that can be used for business, work, holidays, and family life.

By learning another language, you can gain a skill valued by employers, improve your confidence, and broaden your horizons. Classes are fun, social, and interactive, and help keep you and your brain active, whatever your age! You will discover more about the country, its culture, and its people to enhance your travel and life experiences.

We offer 5 different languages; French, Spanish, Italian, German and Portuguese. From time to time we are also able to offer other languages, like Greek, so do make an enquiry if you are interested in a language not mentioned here.

Our language classes are divided into different levels from beginners to advanced. Classes are taught either face-to-face or online, once a week for 2 hours during term time. We have both daytime and evening courses, so you can fit study around your life and work. We also offer short courses during the holidays, aimed at preparing you for your summer holidays abroad. We teach all classes using a variety of learning materials including video & audio clips, practical activities, games, books, and the internet, and you will work with your classmates and tutor to practise the skills you have gained in everyday situations. Our courses are designed to build confidence and improve fluency in your chosen language, and to help you get to know the country(ies) that use your chosen language and their people.

You will have access to our online learning platform, which is full of help and resources. You can access this throughout the week to support your learning outside the classroom.

If you need more information, want to discuss levels and course content, or wish to enrol, you can visit our Learning Centres in-person, call our FREEphone Enrolment Line or email us on the details listed below.

If you need help with your choice of learning, training, career, work and life goals, please book an appointment with one of our Learning and Work Advisors who can provide free, 1:1, impartial advice.
