Languages for All
Speaking a language allows you to think beyond your horizons. It opens up a world of new destinations, inspiring cultures and exciting career options.
Take the first step along this global path and sign up for a Languages for All course, provided free to all students on degree programmes.
Languages for All gives you the chance to try out or improve in a language you love. The programme runs alongside your main studies and offers a flexible choice of study options. These include taught weekly and intensive courses as well as independent study.
Languages for All provides a range of languages and levels, from absolute beginners (A1 CEFR level) to advanced (B2 CEFR level). At present, it offers weekly and intensive modules in Arabic, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. Get further practice in these languages by utilising the independent option, which includes online courses; a variety of physical & online library resources; and a ‘Language Hub’, a purpose-built space designed specifically for language students.
Independent study is also a great way to learn languages not currently taught by Languages for All. The online courses offer 30 languages including Greek, Hindi, Korean and Swedish, and are run in collaboration with Rosetta Stone.
Languages for All also provides many opportunities to improve outside the classroom. These include a Language Exchange Scheme where you can find a partner to practise with, and a Language Café where you can talk to native speakers in a relaxed, social environment. They also work closely with Global Opportunities, so you can prepare both linguistically and culturally for your work, volunteer or study placement abroad.
You can also learn Welsh for free via our Welsh for All Programme.
