Learning languages with CALAT opens up a world of opportunity
Whether you are a complete beginner, a bit rusty or want to be fluent for business or pleasure, CALAT offers languages courses for all levels.
Speaking another language will open up your world and extend your horizons as well as enhancing your job prospects.
We run beginners’ courses in French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish with courses at higher levels in all of these except Japanese.
We have a self assessment form available on-line which you can use to check your level of competency in your chosen language. For a more detailed pre-course assessment email the Languages department at email@example.com or call 020 8726 6000, extension 88120 or extension 50154. This is particularly important if you are new to learning a language with CALAT but are not a complete beginner.
In years 1 to 3 our French, German, Italian and Spanish courses are accredited by ABC Awards. There are no formal written exams. You will work towards the Entry Level 2 or Entry Level 3 Award or Level 1 Award in Speaking & Listening and Reading & Writing skills in your chosen language as appropriate.
Accreditation involves the compilation of a small portfolio of assignments as part of normal classroom activities and assessments undertaken by your teacher, which are then moderated by ABC. These may include a short recorded speaking assessment. All the costs of registration, assessment and certification are included in the course fee. It is expected that all students will take part in the accreditation process as a natural component of the class.
* Accreditation information is correct at today’s date but may be subject to changes due to alterations in our funding allocation.
