Modern Languages Intensive Courses

Course format


We are offering Intensive courses in Arabic*, French, German, Italian, Mandarin, and Russian, online and in person. Delivery is over three weeks and includes two one-hour sessions per week, guided independent learning, communicative tasks, and activities with feedback using the University's Virtual Learning Environment, Canvas. 

*The Arabic intensive course runs over two weeks, not three, so has three hours of teaching per week rather than two.

Arabic Timetable

Please note that the Arabic course runs over two weeks, not three (three classes per week instead of two).
