More than just a language course

Our goal is to develop your intercultural competency as well as your language skills. That’s why our teachers are all native speakers; they bring their own personal experience of not just the language but what it’s actually like to live there and be part of the society.

"Learning a language has lifelong benefits as it is a continuous process. When you study a new language, you also gain a new understanding of your own culture as you see it through a new liminal perspective." Dr Ana De Medeiros, Director of King's Language Centre

Enjoy a range of extracurricular support

All language students get access to the Language Resources Centre and its wealth of benefits. Highlights include free speaking practice with native speakers, complimentary Press Reader membership to read local publications, and access to the Centre, where you can borrow textbooks, dictionaries, laptops and more. Plus, with access to our campus-wide WiFi, you can prepare for your lessons from any of our libraries.
