Durham University Language Center

Our philosophy is that anyone who wants to learn a language should be able to do so. We have therefore developed a broad-based programme of language learning that best responds to the most common demands of our learners.

We offer courses in the most commonly requested languages including Arabic, Catalan, Chinese, Danish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Persian (Farsi), Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish.

We have offered courses in the past in other languages including Dutch, Polish, and Romanian, and can possibly consider other languages including Bengali, Norwegian, or Urdu (for example).

For further details of what is available, please select the language you are interested in from the menu on the left hand side of the page. If you cannot find what you are looking for contact us on cfls.admin@durham.ac.uk.
