Maybe you’re wondering what language is right for your or what format our language courses take. 

If so, then why not join one of our languages taster sessions? 

The taster sessions last for 1 hour and include a short overview of the courses on offer, after which you'll have the chance to breakout into groups and sample classes in your preferred languages, with our tutors.
