Taster session

At the start of every new academic year we run a limited number of free one-hour 'taster sessions and introductory sessions' for our forthcoming courses, giving you the chance to try learning a few basic phrases of the language that interests you. Our tutors will also describe the benefits learning languages and its prospective impact on your studies, personal and professional life.

Like our courses, these sessions are open to everyone, not just staff and students at the University. 

This years some Taster Sessions will take place online and other On-campus (face-to-face).
