Evening Language Courses

For the upcoming Academic Year 2020/21, we will offer our programme of evening language courses for general purposes in French, German, Japanese, Spanish and Chinese.

Japanese and Chinese are offered at beginners level only, French, German and Spanish from beginners to intermediate (subject to numbers).

The classes are open to UL students and UL staff members as well as members of the general public.
These courses are designed for adult learners interested in learning a language or improving their existing foreign language skills. 

Each course consists of 40 hours class contact over 20 weeks running from September 2020 to April 2021. Classes will be held from 18.00 to 20.00 on one evening per week (Tuesdays or Wednesdays, depending on the language/level) starting in the week of 28th of September 2020 (Week 1 of the Autumn semester). 

Please note that all classes will be delivered fully on-line in the first term (Sept.- Dec. 2020) and possibly face-to-face on campus in the second term (Jan.-April 2021) depending on guidance from Health and Safety Authority regarding COVID 19.

Further details on online delivery mode will be forwarded to registered participants closer to the start of the programme and optional induction sessions will also be provided. Please note that a quality internet access is essential.

To accommodate the delivery of online classes, there will be a maximum intake of 10 participants per group.

Participants will be requested to purchase their own copy of the book used in class. Course fees have therefore been reduced accordingly. Details of the relevant books (beginners level ONLY) can be found on the corresponding language course descriptions. For the other levels, the textbook will be confirmed after the first class. The course descriptions can be accessed below.     

As most of our groups are full, REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED.  

If you wish to make enquiries, please contact Dominique Le Meur.

Payment details (cheque or card only) will be outlined by email once classes have been confirmed.
