Course Overview

The University of Lincoln offers languages short courses at beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels in Mandarin Chinese, French, German, English, Italian, and Spanish. You can enrol on any level/year if you have the necessary background in your chosen language (when required). Please note that the plain beginner classes (Core 1) are only offered in September.

Courses run for three hours per week over 12 weeks, starting in September 2023 and January 2024. The two-hour seminar is face-to-face, the mentor that is a drop-in session is online. The classes are normally timetabled between 9am and 6pm.

Our tutors are a mix of native and fluent speakers, and class sizes are usually under 20 students. All courses carry University credits worth 15 CATs (Credit Accumulation Transfer Points), and you will receive a Certificate of Achievement upon successful completion.

The Beginner courses are designed to introduce students to a range of practical language skills, both active and passive, which will enable you to operate at a basic level in general language situations and to enable students to continue to develop the ability to communicate more effectively in the language.

The aim of Intermediate courses is to introduce students to a range of practical language skills, both active and passive, which will enable you to operate at a sophisticated level in general language situations.

Advanced courses are designed to consolidate a wider range of source materials in the foreign language, thereby extending and deepening the student knowledge of its lexical and grammatical features. Activities in the foreign language will require a greater degree of analytical and critical evaluation.
