Foreign language courses

The Marlow Language Centre offers courses in French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and other languages.

Whatever your current proficiency level – beginner, advanced or somewhere in-between, and whatever your motive for learning a language – maybe for pleasure, for business, or to get a qualification – we can help you progress your language skills to the next level.

You can choose from a number of course formats depending on how much of an intense learning experience you want, how much time you can realistically set aside, your budget, and your personal preference.

Live online groups

Learn in the comfort of your own home or workplace. We started running live online groups in response to the pandemic and the lockdown. Now that the restrictions have been eased, we will continue to offer the online option because some students prefer it, and it means that you don’t have to travel.

The same as for the classroom-based courses, we set up small groups of people of similar ability, guaranteeing good progress. Courses follow a timetable.

Classroom-based groups

Groups of three to eight in the classroom. This option is great for students who want to mix with others of a similar level. We’re very aware of the need for social distancing to keep our students and teachers safe during the coronavirus pandemic and we ask you all to follow commonsense post-lockdown procedures.
