What's my level?

Our levels are mapped to the Common European Framework Reference for Languages (CEFR) as Beginner = A1, Beyond Beginner = A2, Intermediate = B1. To pick the best level try the European Centre for Modern Language's self-assessment game in Flash.

Our non-accredited courses offer you the opportunity to:

  • learn a new language or refresh one of your existing languages
  • prepare for studying or working abroad
  • develop skills to help you do business in a foreign language
  • gain basic knowledge before a holiday
  • gain an insight into another culture.

Course information

Classes are delivered in 20 weeks during the University autumn and spring term at Wolverhampton City Campus unless otherwise specified.
