About our courses

Evening Language Courses

Studying on one of our Evening Language Courses means you have the choice of 20+ languages at a range of levels all taught by experienced teachers who are native speakers of the language. 

We are back in the classroom

We are offering courses on both the Strand and Waterloo Campuses. We are following all government guidelines for teaching on campus. Find out more.  

We also offer some classes online 

We will be offering some of our courses online, so you will be able to join us in the virtual classroom. 

About the virtual classroom. 
This will allow for real time online interactions: verbal (audio/video) and by text chat between the teacher and students or between fellow students. Although the class environment and interaction will differ from face-to-face with your fellow students and your teacher, the same syllabus will be covered and the four communicative skills will be addressed (speaking, reading, writing and listening).

The same teaching quality will be delivered through virtual classes and video-conferencing, group work, online exercises and varied activities will be integrated. 

More information on how how we are teaching in the virtual classroom can be found here.

Student Testimonials

Teaching style

We use the immersion method of language teaching. This means majority of the course will be conducted in the language of study. Our teachers use a communicative approach in class, practising the following four skills:

 

  • Speaking
  • Reading
  • Listening
  • Writing

 

Students engage in interactive language activities, participating in group and pair work according to a syllabus based on systematic grammatical progression.

 

High quality language tuition

The LC employs over 100 teaching staff who are native speakers of the language they teach and have in-depth knowledge of language teaching methodology.

Many of our teachers also have expertise in other areas such as journalism, politics, business, international affairs and the health sector.
