Languages

Whether you want credit for your language studies or prefer a non-credit bearing route, we offer a bit of everything.

 

Free ‘taster’ courses, formal classes, a Language Café and regular language networking events – with over 70 languages spoken here at the University of Edinburgh, there are plenty of language learning possibilities!

 

If you already have some knowledge of a certain language and would like to improve your skills, these language taster classes won't be suitable. However, there are lots of other ways of improving your language skills, and you might want to have a look at Languages for All (not-for-credit courses), Open Languages (courses carrying credit), or Tandem (conversation).

 

Tandem is our language programme where you can find other students who are keen to swap their language skills. You can sign up to the Tandem database to find a partner, post a message in our Facebook group, or why not join one of the weekly Language Cafés to have a chat in another language?
