New language classes launched

New classes for people looking to learn a foreign language to use on holiday or just for fun are being launched at the University of Wolverhampton.

The courses are open to everyone and start at any level, from beginner to advanced.

Languages on offer include French, Italian, Spanish, German, Chinese, Japanese and Polish. People can also learn British Sign Language (BSL).

The non-accredited courses are taught by specialist language teachers and lessons are designed to be fun and informal, and do not involve any assessments or exams.

Lynn Leighton-Johnstone, Associate Dean in the University’s School of Law, Social Sciences and Communications, said: “The courses allow people to learn a new language or refresh an existing one. They could also help people preparing to study or work abroad, or just gain basic knowledge before a holiday.

“It will also allow people to gain an insight into another culture or develop skills to help them do business in a foreign language.”

The classes are delivered in either six or 12-week blocks during term-time at both the University’s City and Walsall Campuses. Each session lasts approximately two hours, with lessons taking place in the daytime, evening or on Saturdays.
