Have you ever been on holiday and wished you could cope better with the language? Have you ever thought learning French, Spanish or German could be an asset to you in your job?


If so, a new series of courses starting at the University of Lincoln next week could be just what you need to learn a new language or improve your existing language skills.


Daytime classes at beginner, intermediate and advanced level in Spanish, French and German will commence in the week beginning 26th September at the university’s Languages Centre.


Courses last for 12 weeks, classes are two hours long and students have full access to multimedia language resources.


The cost is £60 per semester and on successful completion part-time students receive a certificate of achievement.


“Studies show that people with more than one language are more attractive to employers,” said university spokesman Jez Ashberry.


“You don’t have to be an expert linguist, but the ability to communicate with speakers of other languages puts you above the rest. 


“And language learning can be fun! Our classes are smaller than those at schools and with the international approach of the university you’ll have plenty of opportunity to practise.”
