HLC offers a range of language courses to suit different learning requirements. Although these courses are not certificated by an awarding body, you will receive a certificate of attendance from HLC. We have an excellent team of tutors, some of whom are native speakers of the target language.

Courses are currently offered in French, Spanish and Italian at three levels:

· Beginners – For those with very little or no prior knowledge of the language.

· Improvers – For those with some prior knowledge of the language. For example, you may have already completed the Beginners course and feel ready to progress to the next level.

· Intermediate – This level is for learners who have acquired the ability to communicate fairly confidently in simple everyday language and who wish to further extend their competence by using their speaking and reading skills in a range of situations. You may have completed the Improvers level course already.
