Evening language classes

Learn a language

Our online evening classes are open to adult learners, are designed for all levels of ability and are available in nine languages. Each class is taught by skilled and experienced tutors, over three terms.

From October 2021 to June 2022 our classes will be taught online via Zoom, except for British Sign Language, which will be taught face to face on campus.

All you need for an online class is access to a device with an internet connection, a microphone and a compatible camera. Come to our free online open evening to find out more about online classes and the level that suits you best.

    What our students say

    Zoom certainly provides an extremely good substitute for the classroom and features such as the notes, share screen and the break out system make it really good.
