Free Language Tasters

Fancy learning a new language? Join one of our free Language Taster Classes offered in collaboration with the Centre for Open Learning and the Confucius Institute for Scotland.


Enrolments are now closed and will open for Semester 1, 2019.


All students at the University of Edinburgh are eligible to take part in one of these classes. They are run over six weeks each and are completely free to join. Our free Language Taster Classes are perfect if you are a complete beginner.


If you already have some knowledge of the language you want to improve, they are not suitable, but why not visit one of our Tandem Language Cafes instead?



Our previous language classes have included Arabic, French, Spanish, Japanese, Scottish Gaelic, Mandarin, Irish Gaelic, German, Russian and Polish.
