We offer small group face-to-face classes in the following languages:

French German Greek Italian Japanese Mandarin Polish Russian Spanish.

Our current timetables are available on the home page.

We are perhaps unusual in the continuity provided by our approach to teaching. Once a group of students come together to form a beginners class, they are invited, each half term, to continue in that small group for as long as they wish to keep learning together. This means that once you join a class you can enjoy stability over many years and students who choose to stay typically achieve high levels of proficiency. Naturally people come and go for various reasons, so normally we welcome new students who already know some of the language to join in when spaces become available.

Our timetable comprises nearly 100 classes spanning the full range of levels, from beginners to advanced, catering for many hundreds of students. Our ethos is to equip students with practical language skills in an informal and friendly setting. 

If you would like to join an existing class, please refer to our advice on enrolment.

In addition to group classes, we can provide group or individual tuition in any of the full range of languages covered by our co-operative of tutors, according to demand.

If you are a language teacher yourself, please see our list of current vacancies for self-employed tutors.
