Languages for All courses are open to students and staff of the University of Roehampton and members of the public. Courses run at Beginner (A1), Elementary (A2) or Lower Intermediate (B1) levels. They are practical, career-boosting, and above all, enjoyable. All courses are 60 hours and you will be required to attend two 90-minute classes per week for 20 teaching weeks starting the first week in October and finishing at Easter. All classes expect only the respective language to be spoken in class to improve your understanding and oral level of your chosen language from the start.
Classes will only run if the minimum class size is reached.
Latin and Ancient Greek is now taught only in the summer term as an intensive course.

The MCL department retains the right to ask students to leave who are not actively engaging in the course or are erratically attending. This course is a wonderful experience to enhance your studies and widen your abilities, as such we must put the majority of students needs first.
