Our language courses are designed to give you the confidence to communicate effectively and with assurance in your chosen language.


 We currently offer Spanish and Italian courses, taught by friendly, qualified tutors here at the Adult Learning centre. These courses are taught at various levels, ranging from complete Beginners all the way up to Advanced, in both daytime and evening classes.

The courses run for an academic year for each level, enrolling once a term – January, April and September – terms typically last between ten and twelve weeks. 

We also offer English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL). Our ESOL courses aim to help speakers of other languages improve their communication skills, fluency and confidence when using English in everyday life, as well as exploring some elements of British culture, history, and geography. Learners will meet people from other countries, make new friends and build confidence when socialising with others.

Our Beginners and Near Beginners classes run on Fridays, and our Intermediate class takes place on a Wednesday.

We concentrate on providing you with the confidence and key skills to allow you to not only get by in your chosen language, but become increasingly fluent as you move through the different levels. If you already have some knowledge of the language, but aren’t sure which level is right for you, get in touch – our tutors will be able to help you decide.
