Language Evening Classes for Adults (18+)

We offer evening classes for adults in French, German, Italian, Spanish and Russian at various levels from beginner to advanced.

Students should expect to contribute and actively participate in lessons which are delivered by our team of enthusiastic tutors, many of whom are native speakers. None of the languages is examined; however some of the teachers may require students to purchase a text book. Please do not purchase any books prior to your class commencing.

The learning environment is relaxed and informal in pleasant surroundings. Classrooms are well equipped and parking is usually available on site.

Each course runs for a school year with classes taking place over two terms: an initial shorter term during the autumn, leading into a second longer term from January through to mid-May. Subject to demand, classes may continue into June and July. Each course prepares students for the next level the following September.
