What we teach

Teaching in Modern Languages and European Studies is delivered through a combination of language classes, informal seminars and lectures.

Language teaching is a core part of most of our programmes and is taught in small groups by experienced staff, many of whom are native speakers. Students will have the opportunity to develop their skills as versatile linguists through speaking, listening, writing, learning grammar, and translating.

'Culture' modules are taught in the first year by a mixture of formal lectures and small-group seminars. In the second and fourth years, you will normally be taught in small groups for all modules and where lectures are used they are of an informal nature.
