Language Express at the University of Kent

Language Express courses are open to anyone who wants to learn a language - there is no need to be a University of Kent student*.

Learn a new language or brush up on your language skills at the University of Kent. Choose from eight modern foreign languages at different levels, as well as British Sign Language. Watch the video to hear what our former Language Express students have to say about the courses.

20-week courses beginning in October at our Canterbury campus. Choose from eight languages at a variety of ability levels.

20-week courses beginning in October at our Medway campus available in French and Japanese.

Study for a Level 1 or Level 2 Award in BSL accredited by Signature.

Thinking of doing a Language Express course? Come and meet the tutors!

On 23 September some of our Language Express tutors will be in Keynes Atrium and will be happy to have an informal chat with you about the courses and their content.

Come along to meet them any time between 12:00-14:00.


Pick a language you've always wanted to learn and just go for it. You will develop useful skills, meet great people and of course learn the language.
