How many times have you thought about picking up a new language but have never actually done anything about it?
Knowing another language is an amazing skill to have and the more time you invest in it, the more opportunities will come your way to travel, meet new people and just know more about a culture different than your own.
Among the many many… many opportunities offered by our University, there is one that makes learning a language as simple and straightforward as it can get.
The programme is called “Languages for All” and it offers you the possibility to either set the base for a new language as a beginner or to just pick up from where you left. There are a lot of options you could choose from and the best thing about it, is that you could also do it for free!
Here are a few things to keep in mind about the programme:
- The programme is very well structured and flexible as it offers you the possibility to attend classes both in the afternoon and evening so it doesn’t clash with any of your modules.
- On top of the actual lecture you will also have a 1 hour Lab that gives you the chance to practice any new information with other people on the same level as you.
- If you are taking the module on a non-for-credit basis the exam at the end is optional, so you don’t have to worry about not having time to prepare for it on top of your actual courses.
- It can either be done for an entire academic year or if you are really busy, going on a year abroad or would like to focus on something else, you can choose to just try it out for a semester.
- If you are taking part in an Erasmus programme, this is an amazing opportunity for you to get the basis of the language before you head off!
- It goes on your HEAR, so there is actual proof to demonstrate your effort!
All in all the programme is a great opportunity to just try something new while you are still figuring everything else at uni!
