Sutton College has an experienced and highly skilled team of modern foreign language tutors and we are delighted to offer a broad range of language learning opportunities.
We deliver courses in Chinese (Mandarin), French, German, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese (European) and Spanish.
Our courses range from Beginner level through to Intermediate and Advanced, and we also have dedicated conversation classes at Upper Advanced level. Most of our language courses are accredited programmes, which means not only will you develop your language skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing but, on successful completion of the assessments, you will emerge with a qualification as well!
These courses are perfect for those who might be planning to visit one of the countries listed above, or who may have friends or family who speak these languages. They are also perfect for people who simply have a passion for language and culture!
For those who are unable to commit to a one-year programme, we offer helpful ‘Essential Basics’ courses of five-weeks for those who want a taste of the language.
The department also offers courses in British Sign Language. These programmes are designed for those who want to learn skills to enable them to communicate with deaf friends or family in British Sign Language or who perhaps have deaf colleagues at work or deaf customers/service users who they meet in their job role. Again, courses are offered at ‘Essential Basics’, along with accredited courses where students can progress from Level 1 through to Level 4.
