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.
Please note you must attend two classes a week. Intermediate classes will only run if the minimum class size is now taught only in the summer term as an intensive course. Latin and Ancient Greek is now taught only in the summer term as an intensive course.
