The Modern Language Centre's Language Resources Centre (LRC) is offering 1 to 1 speaking practice sessions in a number of different languages. During the sessions you will be able to practice your oral skills outside of class in a friendly atmosphere with a native speaker.

Please note that our native speakers are not language teachers and that these sessions are not 'language tutorials' or 'teaching sessions'. Therefore, please arrive with a topic in mind that you would like to discuss, or material that you would like to go over.

Where are the sessions?

All sessions take place in the Language Resources Centre, room K-1.07.2 at the Strand Campus.

Can't find a session that suits you?
