About our Saturday courses

Our knowledgeable language experts teach over 26 languages in the heart of London.

We currently teach 9 languages on Saturdays.

Classes are intensive and run for 3 hours. You can choose from two slots 10.00 am and 14.00 pm. 

How long is the course? This depends on how much time you are able to invest in your studies. Each level takes 15 weeks to complete. Each level is made-up of 3 parts, which are completed in 5 week blocks. And can be booked individually. 

If you book for the duration of the course you will receive a 35% discount.   

Languages to choose from

In 2017/18 we are offering Saturday language courses in:

    Arabic     French     German
    Italian     Japanese     Mandarin
     Russian   
   Spanish   

 

To make sure you choose the right level for you, please take a look at our  language level descriptions. Each language page below displays prior knowledge recommended for each level.

Take our placement tests which are designed to test your linguistic abilities in order to place you in a course at the appropriate level. Each test consists of 30 multiple-choice questions on grammar and vocabulary. 

Please contact us if you are looking for a language that is not currently offered. Alternatively, you may wish to design your own Tailor-Made course.
