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

Unless otherwise stated, we teach our language lessons at either our Strand or Waterloo Campuses. We are following our  COVID-19 guidelines for teaching on campus.

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