Our Spanish (Beginners) evening language classes are open to adult learners, aged 18 and over, and are taught by skilled and experienced tutors.
From October 2022 to May 2023 classes will be taught in person. Classes are delivered over two terms and you can join at the beginning of each term. Please note that Term 2 is a continuation of Term 1. If you are a complete beginner, you should not join mid-way through the year, but instead wait and join in the autumn when the complete beginner courses start. To complete a full level, you need to attend the two consecutive terms.
Please see our homepage for term times.
