Imperial College is well known as one of the world's leading universities for science, technology and medicine, but it also has a lively programme of courses in modern languages as part of its adult education section.

Open to all, our adult education courses are taught live online and attract people from across the UK and all over the world.

Available courses in this area

Our classes cover a range of languages at levels from beginners to advanced, including:

If you have some knowledge of French, Italian or Spanish and would like to improve your speaking and listening skills we also run informal short weekly 'conversation' classes to help you practice these languages:

What to expect

Our tutors are all professional experts with long experience in language teaching, as you would expect from Imperial College, but you will also find them welcoming, friendly and encouraging, not least to those who have never studied these subjects before.

Our adult education courses are not credit bearing, so you do not need any qualifications or previous experience to take part and there is no assessment, and you can take the courses just for fun or to broaden your linguistic horizons.
