Travel may not be possible - but people can learn more about the incredible cultures and languages around the world at the University of Exeter’s evening classes.
The online courses, open to all, include beginners modern Greek, Swedish, Polish, Arabic, Russian and Korean.
This term people can also attend beginner, intermediate and advanced courses in French, Spanish, German, and Italian. There are advanced conversation courses on offer in French and Spanish. People can also take courses on German culture, travelling and short stories in Italian.
There are also courses for beginners and intermediate speakers of Chinese Mandarin, and beginners and post beginners in Portuguese and Japanese.
Astrid Hermes, who coordinates the FLC’s evening language programme, said: “The present uncertain outlook for the economy means many people will be looking to develop new skills and add languages to their portfolios to boost employability. Our courses will also be fun, an enjoyable activity for people to do in their spare time. Although we aren’t allowed to travel at the moment they allow people to experience new languages and cultures from their own homes.”
The online evening courses start from week commencing May 3.
