Time for a language course? Get a taste during our free webinar week!

11 January 2021
Webinar week

Здравствуйте, hello, こんにちは, ¡hola! - Do you want to learn a foreign language this year, or would you like to increase your knowledge of a foreign language? Are you interested in a beginners’ course or follow-up course in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian or Spanish?

Then take an online language course at the Language Centre! Due to the coronavirus pandemic, all our language courses are currently being taught online. You can read about the specifics of our online courses here, but asking the teacher about this directly is, of course, much nicer. And there is an opportunity for just that! At the end of January, we are organizing live webinars for all language courses, so that you can already get a taste of how an online course works.

We will address the various language levels, our approach to online language learning and the online tools in our learning environment. We will also present our current course range and you will be able to ask our teachers questions, so that you will know what you can expect from us.

After registration, you will immediately receive the right links to follow the webinars for free.

The webinars will be offered at the following times. The webinars will be given in English and where possible partly in the language of the course. Hope to see you then!
