Language lessons for everyone

Our courses are open to everyone, not just King's students. We welcome anyone who wants to learn a language at one of our central London campuses, or online. 

We teach over 20 different languages in our evenings classes, or over weekends with our destination courses. Most evening language courses take place over 10 weeks, but some languages are offered as five-week or one-week intensive courses.

Lessons in-person or online

Some courses will be offered online, and you can  find out more about how we teach here.

Our full timetable of classes at all levels is now live. If the course or language is not available then register your interest and we will contact you when the course is next available.
