Summer 2018 Courses at SOAS Language Centre

This summer we are offering the Summer Programme of intensive and semi-intensive courses in various languages and at different levels. An intensive course normally involves 20 hours of tuition per week, with classes taking place every day in the afternoon. If a course is in the semi-intensive mode, it usually means that you will receive 10 hours of tuition per week, with lessons being held on weekday evenings and on Saturday morning, or on weekday evenings only. You can access the detailed timetables for each specific course by clicking on the course title from the list below.

Our intensive and semi-intensive summer courses will suit those who could not join the spring term course in their target language. It is also a great opportunity to try learning a new language and then return for a regular evening course in the autumn term. Studying a language at SOAS Language Centre is an enjoyable experience and, as a learner, you would be in the company of like-minded people, taught by those who have a wealth of experience in language teaching.

Please read the course description and the course information carefully before applying for the course. All the necessary information is contained on the individual course pages under the course headings.
