Summer Taster Courses

Information will be updated in Spring 2017 for the summer courses.

Are you thinking of studying a new language but not sure if you want to commit to long term learning? Or do you simply want to learn enough for your holiday?

Why not come and try one of our Summer Taster courses first?

We offer short courses aimed at absolute beginners and near-beginners, as an introduction to the language, in Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.

If you enjoy it, you can then continue learning with us in the autumn on either our LLL or Academic programmes!


Duration: 10 weeks

Starting: Week 1 of the summer term, week commencing 25th April 2016

Enrolment: Enrolment for these classes is now open. Places are allocated on a first come, first serve basis so we would recommend you enrol sooner rather than later. 

Fee: £130 or 2 WLA vouchers.

Level: You are a complete beginner, knowing virtually nothing of the language.

Main Objectives: The course will provide a very basic knowledge of the structure and vocabulary of the language.
It is ideal as an introduction for those planning to take the Beginners level or for those who just want the confidence to get by abroad.
