We offer language courses at all levels and over 27 different languages here at City Lit. Whether you would like to attend part-time evening, daytime or weekend language classes, our highly popular language courses offer the widest choice in London.

Many of our courses are delivered online by expert tutors. Our approach to learning is to teach you how to communicate effectively in real-life situations and we select content that is relevant to your needs. If you are a beginner, you will learn how to use the language as opposed to just repeating words and sentences as you would do with an app. We teach you to communicate rather than repeat. For more information about our live online courses, please see our guide to online learning.

Our classes range from FrenchGermanItalian and Spanish to JapaneseKorean and Arabic. Most language lessons are taught at seven different levels and you can start anywhere from beginner to advanced. We offer short courses, intensive and fast-track if you need to learn in a hurry, as well as one-day workshops and tasters.

Use our self-assessment tool to help you choose the right course for your level.
